Sheep on Orcas Island


sheep on Orcas Island, originally uploaded by jomoma58.

I spent the weekend on beautiful Orcas Island in the Puget Sound. Stopping to take a few pictures of these adorable sheep and lambs (three black ones, one white one), cost us our coveted spot in the ferry line. Had to wait 4 –1/2 more hours for the next ferry!! Ah, that's island life. But, it was a gorgeous sunny winter day, and there was much exploring to do around the ferry dock: beaches, gift shops and the Orcas Hotel (built in the 1800's). Had a grand picnic in the back of the car, complete with beer, cold cuts, cheese, olives, strawberries, chocolate...and a mean game of gin rummy! No complaints.

  1. Oh it sounds wonderful - I WANT TO GO THERE (no chance)! What a fabulous day you had, love the sound of your picnic; just the crazy sort of thing we used to do. Thanks for sharing. Ann (from UK)

    P.S. I see you have just bought encaustic paints - I was at a UK craft exhibition today, talking encaustic; fascinating.

  4. HI! I can't tell you how glad I am you visited my blog and left a comment -- I had found your blog and enjoyed it for a long period, then when my hard drive died, I LOST YOU!!! I'm over here doing the Snoopy Dance right now! (but not until I'd saved you again to my favorites!) thanks for your comment, gave me a huge smile.

  7. Well, I think Orcas Island going to be around for a long time, and I don't think much will ever change there..."time/space" is definitely different there.
