24 Hours on Orcas Island

I love everything about Orcas Island, except the internet.  Sending my amazing photos via wi-fi isn't working out well and I'm also having difficulty sending my interesting texts.  Be that as it may, you should probably head out to Orcas Island some time soon if you feel like it.  Yesterday we hiked through forest, saw waterfalls and starfish, had a picnic next to a mountain lake, and ate dinner at the incredible Inn at Ship's Bay.  Right now, I'm blogging in my Orcas Island garden.  A bald eagle flew overhead a bit ago and the rufus hummingbirds zip among the daisies and poppies.  My view is the Puget Sound and snow capped mountains in the distance.  Today we're off to see some whales.  I've wanted to see whales my entire adult life.  I talk about it every day pretty much.  The woman booking our trip said that there's a 99% chance that we'll see whales today.  I read the brochure to Husbandman last night, telling him about all the things we need to bring on the boat: sunscreen, snacks, jackets, water bottles, binoculars.  Husbandman added, "Let's not forget the harpoon."  
Geez Louise.  Today's going to be epic. That's how we roll on Orcas Island.
