Last Full Day on Orcas Island

July 25, 2019 – Another sunny, warm morning on Orcas Island. Roger bought a new truck and went to pick it up early this morning. I made some rehydrated eggs and sausage for Uncle and me. Then we took Gaston and Roger’s new pup, Cooper, to Mt. Constitution for a short hike. Before the hike, we discussed the options of getting a rental vehicle for Uncle to take home so that I could have the Saab to use to get to launch/take out sites next week.

Roger returned with his new silver steed and we went for a late lunch in Eastsound. We returned to Roger’s and Uncle Sidney purchased Roger’s old truck, a 1987 Ford Lariat. This works well not only for him having a vehicle to drive home, but for him to use until he gets his new-to-him van – a win/win. Roger bought the truck from his son, so we are keeping it in the family.

For me, it’s been a productive day getting drybags repaired, incorporating the new supplies into my gear bags, booking the ferry ride tomorrow, and I am ready to go. I am hoping to get an afternoon paddle in tomorrow from Oak Harbor.

Just the waterfall.

I am passionate about outdoor exploration. In the recent years I have discovered how much more I can experience from a kayak. I am a professional musician and own a dairy where we produce raw milk, butter and cheeses. My son tells me I have "too much on my plate". He is correct, but I wouldn't live life any other way.
