{6july2011: weekend road trip part 3}

part 1
part 2

On our last day on Orcas Island we had grand plans for brunching, kayaking and relaxing, but we scratched the kayaking portion pretty early in the day. It turned out to be a pretty warm day and there wasn't anywhere to keep Darwin while we went out for 3 hours so we cancelled at the last minute. Instead we found an off-leash park in Eastsound where Darwin got to play with some new friends.

I have to say for a small little park I liked that it was a grassy field and not wood chips and dirt as a lot of dog parks are and there were lots of toys/balls all over the park.
We didn't stay at the park very long and instead went over to visit Darwin's bff Friday. Little did we know Darwin would be making a new bff.... Skeeter!
At first they were unsure of each other. Darwin didn't like that Friday had a new friend and Skeeter didn't like that another dog was at her house. But soon they were all over each other!
Skeeter even would take flying leaps off of Jason's lap to jump at Darwin.
They even relaxed together in the shade.
All in all it was a fun weekend trip up to Orcas Island. Coming back to "city life" took some adjusting after the slow paced island weekend.


  1. Cool, Darwin had some fun with some new friends. All-in-all, a pretty good weekend for everyone.

  2. Hi Darwin, its good to meet new friends. Your friend looks kinda scruffy and fun. No worries, and love Stella

  3. I love those first photos of Darwin with the 'twins'. Not to mention all those amazing background scenery shots behind the park.
