Farewell Beautiful Orcas Island, till next time . . .


It was time to bring our Airstream back home and I knew this was going to be a difficult trip.  Difficult emotionally.  I have become so attached to these beautiful San Juan Islands.  The way of life here, so relaxed, so easy, so calm.

We planned to have breakfast in Eastsound at one of our favorite spots and then take one last stroll through this quaint little town that is full of unique boutiques, fine dining and so much more.  My previous post here goes into greater detail and photography in regards to the beauty and charm that can be found here.

We had breakfast at the New Leaf Cafe where almost everything is homemade from the smoked salmon to the homemade breakfast sausage.  Their bread of choice is brioche and basically, their menu was amazing.

If you visit Orcas Island, please do stop by the New Leaf cafe in Eastsound.  I promise, you won't be dissapointed.  Hubby and I ordered our usual "smoked salmon eggs benedict." and B got his usual "french toast."  Oh and make sure to order the freshly squeezed orange juice . . . I've never tasted juice so good!

Bon Appetit!

Have you ever had their Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict? I literally DREAM of this. It is the only thing I ever order. One day I may venture out of my little box and order something else but until then, this is Heaven on a plate.
