We travelled to the PNW for the first time this summer. Friends were getting married on Orcas Island and we decided to tack our summer vacation on before the wedding. We flew in to Portland, drove up to Olympic National Park, continued on to Seattle for a few days, and then made our way to Orcas Island.
I'll be sharing some photos from our time in Portland and Seattle, but Orcas was definitely the most visually appealing. Blues and whites and so much light everywhere. It's crazy to me to think that there are places on this earth that I may never travel to that are such little gems. We most likely would have never had a reason to go to Orcas Island if not for this wedding. It was a bit of a hike to get to in that it was a 3 hour drive from Seattle and then a 45 minute ferry ride to the island. From there, we took the one road around the island for about 30 minutes before arriving at the hotel.
