The day after clearing into the US looked a little wet so we decided to take Barry and Irene McPhee’s (met on Prevost Island) advice and check out Rosario on Orcas Island. What a great idea that was – for small fee we received a mooring and access to the spa – hot tub, outdoor pool, and indoor saltwater pool. The building has a fantastic history and if you appreciate woodwork it will impress. Originally built by the owner of the Seattle Shipyard which built the last Victory class warship for the US navy. Those skill craftsmen were then put to work on Orcas so every where you look you see their handy work. While it rained outside we took in the spa, the building and even sat in the bar to play cribbage and of course have a beer. A wonderful place to check out if you are ever in the area.
