Operation Orcas!

(Ferry landing at Orcas)

Orcas Island that is!  Many of you know that we have been trying to move for a little while.  Orcas Island, in Washington, has been the target for a while now.  Last summer we tried for two homes and didn't get either of them.  The hubby and daughter just left today for some house hunting up there, I'm having high hopes.  As the year has passed my  desire to move to this little island in the sound has only grown stronger. It's beautiful, safe, it has a great community with a good school, people are friendly and you can see the stars when you look up at the sky at night.  What more can you ask for?

Granted, with every change in life, comes the positives and the negatives.  When we leave here, we will be leaving friends and family, a collective of resources and information, as well as the simple awesomeness of the Bay Area.  I've grown up here and, aside from college,  it has been my home ever since I can remember.  I will be sad to leave.

(The view from one of the  homes we are considering, incredible isn't it?)

That said, our family is ready for a new adventure and what a better place to start that than amidst the land's green and the water's blue.  Orcas Island has a lot of both those colors.  So friends, we will keep you updated as to what we find!  Please keep your fingers crossed for us!
