"No, no! The adventures first, explanations take such a dreadful time."
-Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
A couple months ago, Brian and I took a couple days off and headed up to Orcas Island for a little getaway and I am so glad that we did. Orcas Island is so charming and beautiful and downright magical.
One thing that several people had recommended for us to see was Orcas Island Pottery. We made the trek out one morning and fell in love instantly. It might have been the beautiful grounds and the stunning view but I think what caught us both was this amazing tree house on the property. It brought me back to childhood for a moment and all the adventures my friends and I had playing in the woods and endless amounts of exploring that we did.
I think that's one of the reasons I loved Orcas so much, everything was new and fun to explore from the cute shops and restaurants to the hikes and other islands; everything we came upon was a discovery. I love that.
