We decide to hang close and make reservations at Rosario Resort and Spa on Orcas Island and are fortunate to get two of the last three slips available. This island in the San Juans is very popular, especially on the weekend.
We leave Cap Sante on a clear day with calm waters, and Mt. Baker is very bright, with the snow reflecting the sunlight.

We enjoy the scenery of rocks and hills and the Olympic Mountains in the background.
We take the most direct route to Rosario, with a slight jog to go around Obstruction Island -- just south of Orcas and north of Blakely.
As we explore the grounds of the resort, I find that I especially like the back of Vicki's shirt and the fire lily flowers.
There is wildlife here...........
.....and we quickly hurry past it.
We inquire about the organ concert schedule, learn that the season begins tomorrow, and are invited to browse inside the music room and museum.
We look forward to tomorrow, but now head back to the marina. Find Moondance. Find Willie's Tug.
As we are having cocktails in the cockpit, we hear a seaplane spinning around to take off.
Vicki's special recipe for brown rice compliments Bruce's grilled pork loin for dinner.
Hmmmm.....there is much story-telling going on tonight. And the good news is that David and Maureen will join us tomorrow afternoon.
