Weekly Photo Challenge – Escape

The first summer after I started my career in education (1983) I insisted Creighton and Itake a vacation.  We spent three wonderful days in August, on Orcas Island, and bicycled San Juan  and Lopez Islands as well.  The next year we had a week, and eventually we would spend the first two weeks of July, in Cabin number 1, at Beach Haven.

This summer, 2013, will be the first one in thirty years that we will not be going to Orcas.  Instead, we plan to spend a week at Beach Haven in October.  We visited twice before in November, so we know it will be a quieter time.  This photo is one I took in November, 2007, on the Ferry that transports visitors from Anacortes, WA to Shaw, Lopez, Orcas, and San Juan Islands.  As the Ferry churns ever away from the mainland of busy daily life and work, it takes me to a place of absolute peace and restfulness; my escape.
