Sally Thomsen of Friday Harbor is the winner of the first periodic SanJuanJournal.com GeoBee.

She was the third person to correctly identify the scene in this photograph as a portion of Spruce Street in Friday Harbor.

As the winner, she is invited to stop by The Journal office on Monday morning for coffee and one — maybe two — of columnist Howard Schonberger's fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies.

SanJuanJournal.com offered that enviable prize to the third person to submit the correct answer. The choices were:

a. A stream near a walking trail on San Juan Island.

b. A conservation easement recently purchased by the Land Bank.

c. Some place called River City.

d. Newly discovered salmon habitat.

e. A portion of Spruce Street in Friday Harbor.
