It was gray. It was overcast. But that didn’t stop us. The four of us loaded into my Scion tC and headed to Orcas Island via a ferry from Anacortes. Chris’ sister Tina and her husband Kevin and I got up and were out the door at 6:00 AM. I was the taskmaster. We had a ferry to catch and we weren’t going to miss it.
Tina and Kevin came to visit us for the week. They flew in from South Carolina on Saturday morning and were staying with us until the following Saturday. Our grand plan was to drive and ferry to Orcas, spend the night at the Outlook Inn an then head on to Victoria, BC for two days and head home to Seattle on Wednesday.
Most of Sunday was spent driving all over Orcas exploring … and for Tina … exploring had to include places to shop! Shop ’til you drop baby! We went to Moran Sate Park and roamed around the park for a while. Once we were done there we thought we’d tool around the island and find more things to do. Only problem …. the island is small … and the Outlook Inn was located in the main part of town. So officially … there was not much more to explore. Remedy? Either rest, shop or eat. Oh. And on Sunday. Most everything is closed … in the off season.
A fun time was had by all, as well as the best breakfast and dinner at the Outlook Inn’s restaurant The New Leaf Cafe. Yummy! Some of the best food we had ever eaten. And that’s no exaggeration.
