Orcas Island

Hi Blog Followers! This is Liv (aka Girl). This post is about Orcas Island. I hope you like it!

I’m at Orcas Island! We have rented a house. On the way here we got on a ferry (well, two ferries!) and I tried to spot whales but we didn’t see any. It was a short drive to the house after the ferry rides and I got to go with my Grandma Mia, her friend Marla, and my mom’s brother, Mac. My mom and dad road with Stella in the truck. When we got to the house, the view was really pretty. My dad had a good idea. He got out our binoculars and put them on the table outside so we could look for whales in the ocean from our deck.

Biking is hard on this island because this island has a lot of mountains. We even had to walk our bikes down a hill because it was so steep. We road our bikes around town and we took a path to a little, mini airport. We didn’t know we were going there, it was a surprise! We got to see a little plane take off.

Hiking is the best!

Hiking is beautiful on this island. We hiked down to a waterfall. It was steep to the waterfall and then we climbed back up and went on with our hike. Then we saw a few more waterfalls that were amazing. There were little swimming holes at the bottom of each waterfall and the pools looked clear with a hint of teal. After the hike we went on a little walk up to a big, tall rock tower. I got to climb stairs to the top of the tower and saw a beautiful view of the ocean. The boats looked so small in the water that surrounds the island. I waved down to my dad, Mia, Marla and Mac. I said “you all look so small”!

I heard a girl, her brother and big sister play violin solos. I got to give her a dollar because her solo was amazing.

Orcas Island is awesome because you can see the ocean view and everyone is kind, sweet and nice. I wish everyone could visit Orcas Island. It was a treat to go to the island and visit with my family that came out to spend time with us on our road trip.

  • Hi, Liv, (aka Girl!) Orcas Island looks so pretty. Did you ever see any whales with the
    binoculars, from the deck of the rental house? The gorgeous colors of the waterfall’s reflection from the sun, the vivid green moss, ferns, and your TOTAL blue outfit are “something to write home about!!” 😂 😆 Thank you for the informative blog! XO Oma

  • Liv,
    It was so much fun to hang out with you and your parents on Orcas Island. I also thought it was GORGEOUS! The view from Mt. Constitution was one of my favorite views in the whole world.
    I was impressed by what a great driver your Dad is backing that trailer rig down our steep driveway! I was also impressed by what a good, sweet traveler Stella has become.
    I’m so glad that you and your family are able to take this amazing trip together. I always look forward to reading you terrific posts.
    XOXO Mia
