Orcas Day 1: Ferry to the San Juans

We almost didn’t make our ferry to Orcas Island because we were picking berries. 

Being gone for the weekend with a huge garden is not easy, so we watered everything and picked as many berries as we could between work and driving to Anacortes to catch the ferry.

We’re not roughing it for our third anniversary. We’re staying in a hotel at Deer Harbor, within a short distance of a kayak launch. So we  (safely) sped along I-5 to be the last ones on.


As soon as we got out of the car on the ferry we saw orcas!! And I don’t mean the island 🙂

Even when orcas weren’t in sight it was an incredible ride. 


We checked into our hotel late but were excited to see the hot tub, fireplace, and (opposed to our normal camping) king bed, kitchenette, and bathroom.


We got to bed as soon as possible to get up early for kayaking!

    1. Thanks, Susan!
      I tried clicking on your blog but it said it doesn’t exist.
      Taking a break currently from paddling? Or just blogging?
      Thanks for the encouragement 😊 I’m currently writing this while stuck in crazy traffic (hubby is driving the 5mph, I’m not blogging while driving!) trying to get out of Seattle for more kayaking! Stay tuned 😊
