This yurt would have had a fantastic view, but I can only imagine what the walk was like to reach it. A couple of years ago it wouldn't have been an issue...
It was so peaceful... Duchess and I were the only ones here for an hour or so.
As the light of the morning changed, so did the colors of the water.
We were joined by some crows.
Duchess was such a good girl, tied to the leg of the chair, waiting patiently.
If I could have gotten a close-up, it would have looked like this...
I could truly look at this view forever and never tire of it.
We had been sitting there for awhile when we heard a voice behind us and turned to see a woman walking two cats. No, it couldn't be! But it was - the Cat Lady from Tulalip and Angel of the Winds! "We know you!" Larry said. While we were staying in the RV parks at the Casinos, before settling down in Clearview, we had met this same woman. She had been living in her RV with her cats, moving from place to place, and was now doing the same thing on Orcas Island. Not a bad place to be a gypsy!
Larry took Duchess down to the water to explore.
She doesn't like to go too far in, but she does like to get her feet wet!
Meanwhile, I'm still stitching away on my little rug...
The sky was changing, creating interesting shadows on the water.
The Heron flew to a different rock.
Eventually, we realized that we were tired and decided to head back "home". We lay down and read and Larry took a nap until it was time for him to head back down for another soak. Duchess and I stayed home and enjoyed our quaint, cozy cabin.
We had oyster stew for dinner. The oysters were from a can - we didn't harvest them ourselves! It was going to be sad leaving in the morning.
More to follow!
