The past few days have been a whirlwind of adventure and lack of phone service…so I’m a bit bit behind in posting. But the following photos are from Doe Bay (Orcas Island), Obstruction Pass State Park (Orcas Island), Lopez Island (Yes, again! We loved it so much we went back!), and Friday Harbor.
Some of the highlights of the past few days include:
-The perfect pebble beach at Obstruction Pass State Park
-The full moon rising over the ocean at Doe Bay
-Taking a water taxi back to Lopez
-Tasting wine at the Lopez Island Winery
-Watching the final game of the World Cup!
-The great Hiker/Biker campsites at Odlin County Park on Lopez
-The farmers market on Lopez
-Seeing my grandparents old sailboat bed and breakfast in Friday Harbor
-The adorable cabins at the Wayfarer’s Rest Hostel in Friday Harbor
The last few days have been so beautiful and so relaxing, that I haven’t felt like writing or posting, or really doing much of anything! Doe Bay is lovely (although a tad too expensive) and tomorrow we will be heading to Obstruction Pass State Park for a bit more of a rustic and remote setting.
Spencer Spit State Park (Lopez Island) to West Beach Resort (Orcas Island):
Today we cycled a short 4 miles to the ferry dock at Lopez Island, ate a delicious burger and deep fried, sugar coated, dough bits, took the ferry to Orcas Island, and then biked the 10, hilly miles to West Beach Resort just outside of Eastsound. The day was hot, but beautiful and we are spending the evening relaxing on the waterfront deck with a cold beverage!
Deception Pass State Park to Spencer Spit State Park on Lopez Island:
Today was a beautiful, and while fairly short overall, exhausting day! We finally made it to the San Juan Islands and decided to start our time here on the “bicycle island”. Our campsite is amazing, our dinner at the “Love Dog Cafe” was amazing, the weather is amazing and everything around us is simply beautiful!
