Where I stayed
Boardwalk on the Water, Rose Cottage
Larry and Derek put up the curtain rod and curtains and they look really nice.
While all of this was going on I prepared food for our time in the San Juan’s. Mostly I did cheese grating and chopping of veggies so I don’t have to do it there. We got done with all our chores and showers and packing at 2:30. Larry and Derek went for a walk and I stayed at the condo to give my feet a rest. When they got back we packed the car and even with Erin’s cooler and our collapsible cooler we fit everything and could still see out of the back. We picked Erin up shortly after 4:00 and headed north to Anacortes.
The traffic was really heavy even north of Everett but we got to Fidalgo Island, Anacortes, in plenty of time to stop at Deception Pass and walk the long bridge
The first think I did upon arrival was turn on the oven. We brought in all our stuff. The front deck of our cottage has an awesome view of the moon over the water with Shaw Island in the background. That is about the only thing awesome about this cottage. To say it is rustic is an understatement. Not only rustic but old and dirty. At least it is a step up from primitive tent camping. I put the shepherd’s pie in the oven and then started washing dishes for supper because nothing looked clean. The pictures of this place made it look nice but the reality is something else. We got settled and watched the ferry leave. Soon our dinner was ready. We were starved so we wolfed it down and did the dishes. We watched Pawn Stars for awhile and then went to bed about 11:00.
