Orcas Island, San Juan WA

San Juan Islands, a group of 3 islands, Lopaz Island, Orcas Island & San Juan Islands/Friday Harbor is one of the most beautiful place in Washington.

During the ’09 Christmas weekend we had been to Orcas Island.
Started early in the morning for Anacortes from where we had to take ferry for Orcas. It was a nice early moring drive on the lonely foggy road, untill...... read on 
We reached Anacortes, waiting to board ferry & then I realized that hubby had left our bags at home and we had an overnight stay at orcas. I don’t have to tell what happened next.
Anyway at orcas our cottage was upgraded to the one which had an ocean view. Ah!! Bags forgotten.

As it was Christmas everything at Orcas was closed and trust me, it was good as I didn’t get to hop around the stores, hence had plenty of time just to enjoy the beauty of Orcas.

The view from Mount Constitution was breath taking. It offers the panoramic views of San Juan, Vancouver Island, Cascades & Olympic mountain ranges. You can drive or hike to this point. Its worth an effort & must-see, must-see, must-see place to be if you are in/going to Orcas.
