Travel with me to Orcas Island — one of my favorite islands located in the San Juan archipelagoes and
see what a glorious time there is to be had.
Earlier this summer we had a party by the sea with our Airstream on Orcas Island in the beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State . . .
I invited my sweet friends I have made on island over the years and it was a night I will never forget ♥
Sometimes when life gets super busy, it helps me to sit down and take note of everything happening around me. The last two weekends for us have been spent up on Orcas Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State.
The purpose of our first visit was to reconnect with friends and have a party in their honor back at our camp. I wanted everything to be perfect so I worked very hard on that trip for a couple of months prior. The party went off without a hitch and so many wonderful things happened that weekend that I really look forward to sharing with you.
When traveling with an RV there are many benefits to be had. Take for example the fact that you have all the comforts of home with you including a fully equipped kitchen. Sure it’s probably smaller than your kitchen at home, but with a little organization and planning, you can easily whip up the same healthy meals you do for your family at home, but on the road.
What’s better is that you’re actually on the road. Traveling. Exploring. Seeking out new adventures. Can you imagine a better way to experience the “here and now,” than visiting a local market where you just happen to be seeking out the freshest, in season goodies to cook a meal with? Take it to the next level and talk to some locals shopping in the market. Ask them how they like to cook those “in season” ingredients. More often than not, you’ll make a new friend and come back to your RV inspired, ready to cook.
Ever since bringing home our Airstream in 2010 it has somewhat become a tradition to spend the cozy Thanksgiving holiday in the San Juan Islands – specifically Orcas Island. Year after year we return with the longing of peace, relaxation and just taking things easy next to the Salish Sea.
There is never a dull moment when spending time in the islands . . .
You can spend an eternity in the San Juan Islands and it still would not give you enough time to discover everything these magical islands have to offer. As we continue our spring trips and postings here on J5MM I would like to share with where we were this time, last year :)
This weekend we are heading to Hood Canal to stay at a really cute RV park called, “Rest a While” where we are hoping to get some clams that I can cook for dinner. Part 3 of our Olympic Peninsula Loop is also coming soon — hopefully tomorrow!
