Magical and Healing Islands of the Pacific NorthwestOur stay on Orcas Island was truly magical. Old growth forests meet meadows and rolling farmlands to create microcosms of ideal life. And the food is amazing. Fresh seafood, produce grown on the island including artichokes, berries, kale, lettuces, beets, tomatoes, cherries, fresh island-grown dairy and meat, even wine produced on nearby Lopez island. Too many lovely swims, walks, coves and views to list. Native Americans and early settlers alike attribute calming and healing powers to the islands. We are converts!
