15th Wedding Anniversary Trip

Daryl & I went out to Orcas Island, off the coast of Washington for our 15th Anniversary. It was absolutely wonderful. Since it was September, the weather wasn't too hot & there were not very many people at the resort, so it was nice and relaxing.

We stayed at the Rosario Resort When we arrived, they had surprised us by upgrading our room to the Roundhouse. This was absolutely fabulous!! It was a ROUND house that was set off to the side from part of the resort. (This resort is spreadout over 33 acres, which includes four restaurants, a marina, 3 pools - 2 of which (one indoor) that are heated to 89 degrees & a Spa. This roundhouse used to be the playhouse of the Moran family children (in the early 1900's) The mansion that the family built(Mr Moran was a shipbuilder), now houses the Spa, two of the restaurants, the check-in desk and the offices for the Rosario Resort .

It was wonderful to wake up in the morning & sit on our patio (that was entirely around our building). It was so nice to sit back & relax & take in all of the views: the bay, the mountains, the sailboats & the float plane what that would drop off or pick up passengers to go back to the mainland. Will we come back and visit? You betcha!! Daryl said he could easily retire here!
