During my thirty year career, our go-to place for vacation was log cabin #1, at a small resort, Beach Haven, on the northwest shore of Orcas Island, WA
After each school year of counseling, being in this quiet place with no TV, phone, or internet, was healing. I would awaken to the sound of ocean waves gently washing over the pebble beach in front of our cabin.
At the end of the day I could sip wine while watching gorgeous sunsets over the ocean channels before me.
When I retired, we changed our visit from summer to fall, and eventually, decided we were ready to have a place of our own that we could enjoy more often.
The seven hour drive and ferry ride from our home to Orcas (plus the high price of property) discouraged us from buying a vacation home in the Islands, though we think of our times there fondly, and look to visit again in the future.
Thank you Tina for another open invitation to revisit in photos and memories, some very special places!
