It’s always exciting to be riding the big ferry and pull into the dock at Orcas Island in the heart of the San Juan Islands of Washington State. I lived here for 4 years and my daughter was born here. For me it has that deja vu feeling; a palpable sense of familiarity that is quietly comforting. In and of itself, though, it is a magical place. Mountain hikes, lakes to swim in, salt water beaches to explore and just the relaxed ambiance of Island life to bask in. Pure magic.
