Filed under: Pre-Tour Vacation — Henry Scott @ 10:00 pm

Sadly, today was the last day of our vacation together — Jennifer will fly back to South Bend from Seattle tomorrow, and I’ll start my bike trip. Despite the sad cloud of Jennifer’s imminent departure, today was a good day.

We spent the morning walking the grounds of the bed and breakfast on Orcas Island, which included a visit with their surprisingly friendly sheep. We also made a final trip into Eastsound to explore the shops, before heading to Orcas Village to have lunch and catch the 2:30 ferry back to


We had an excellent dinner at a restaurant called Star Bar, and we’re now relaxing in our hotel room while I slowly do my final packing. I’m excited to start the tour, but it will definitely be a bummer to say goodbye to Jennifer tomorrow.



  1. Safe travels home Jennifer and I’m hoping for a an excellent start of your trip Henry. Keep all of us posted.
