Olga on Orcas Island

August 20, 2009

We’re staying in the little waterfront community of Olga on Orcas Island. It lies at the foot of Entrance Mountain. For excitement, there’s the Olga Store but it closes around five, a Post Office, a nice restaurant a couple of blocks up the road and an oyster farm about a mile away at Buck Bay. Fortunately, we came not for excitement but for peace and quiet not to mention the great view down East Sound. In the distance, we can see WSF ferries going by in Harney Channel. Olga is also close to Moran State Park, more on that later.
