Orcas Island


We had a great labor day weekend vacation exploring the San Juan Islands and the Seattle area! Mulder spent his vacation in a pet hotel for the first time so we were able to do things we would not normally do with him. We saw many things and took lots of pictures. so there will be multiple posts about the trip. The sequence may not necessarily be chronological. I decided to move on to other posts as there are so many events to write about.

After a full day seeing the San Juan Island, we were ready to hop on to the next one. Orcas Island is one of the major islands in the archipelago. Since we had already planned to spend the night in Seattle, we made it a point to get there early. Eastsound Village was a quaint charming town, more like a place you would stay if you wanted a quiet vacation. It still had a lot going for it like cool shops and good restaurants. The view was fabulous!
