We took the ferry to Orcas Island Sunday afternoon last week. We were anticipating a full week at the cabin, just the three of us. A week without TV, a week with spotty internet and cell service, a week without playdates or daycare; just us, the beach, a boat and the sunshine. We had a date with disconnecting and it was just what the doctor ordered.
On the ferry:
We then climbed out to the point, up to the cliff above and took the deer trial along
the edge back to the cabin.
I love this picture. I think it might be a deer bed in the foreground? The island was littered with deer families - 2 little baby deer were hanging around the cabin most days.
That afternoon we took the Boston Whaler out for it's first spin of the summer. It's sort of our favorite family activity. Edie goes bananas for the boat and begs to go fast. Then she falls asleep after about 15 minutes and we bundle her into the coats/blankets in the middle of the boat and enjoy the ride just the two of us.
Rounding the day out with a little Diggity Dog action (a new game we purchased for this vacation and to keep at the cabin) while we made pizza on the grill.
And yes we made 2 pizzas for 3 people. The plan being for leftover pizza all week. Jeff says I'm overly sensitive slash defensive about my food consumption. He would be right.
More photos to come.
