Orcas Island


Back from a very relaxing vacation on Orcas Island. We did see some Orca whales on the ferry ride over. They are such fun and fabulous creatures, a sight to behold. This picture is the view we had from our cottage on the island. We did some hiking and biking and quite a bit of just relaxing in the hot tub. It's good to be back though!

My parents used to live on Orcas Island.... when you get off the Ferry, they were about the 3-5 house down on the left on the road..... it's been long enough of a time, I can't remember.... what a beautiful island. They went there on vacation and decided they HAD to live there..... so retirement came and they did. Hope your time was just as pleasant!!!

We visited San Juan Island many years ago and oddly enough, we met a couple that was also from Atlanta and we became fast friends. I just got back from spending the weekend with her at their lake house! What a funny coincidence! Glad you had a nice vacation in such a lovely spot!

Congrats on the featured stamper gig, too! I may have to play in it for the first time ever!
