Day 167: 8.25.12
Last Saturday, our first (and last) full day on Orcas Island was also quite eventful. I had to get up bright and early for my wedding gig, but of course ended up sleeping in a little longer than I intended; luckily I still ended up being on time and everything went smoothly. The bride was happy, and everybody looked great, my two most important things when it comes to doing weddings.
Sofia spent the morning with Jason, there was a farmer’s market happening as well as a handful of other weddings sprinkled throughout the island. It really WAS wedding central there; we were so in love with the island and it’s secluded awesomeness it was just another temptation to move there knowing there could be good business… But one can only dream, I am, alas, a city girl at heart, and I’d probably end up going stir crazy.
After I was done with my wedding, Jason came to pick me back up after checking out of the inn and we spent the rest of the afternoon driving around and exploring the island. Sofia was asleep for the majority of the driving, but that gave way to a peaceful drive. We ended up driving to the top of Mt. Constitution, then coasting back down again. It was the perfect day to be up there, and the view was incredible! (I’ve included a photo down below)
After driving back down, we hit a local restaurant before heading back to the ferry (this time we didn’t miss it!). It was a late night drive home, but all the worth it to be able to pass out in our own bed. Though it was a short trip this time, it was still fun, and I know we’ll be back there again soon.
It was another day where Sofie’s “official” photo got lost in the mix, but we still managed to get a decent (outdoor) one, courtesy of Jason. Enjoy the extra pics also!
