Roche Harbor & Rosario Resort

We left Wednesday from Port Ludlow Marina to Roche Harbor.  It takes us 6 hours to cross.  We decided to go “on the hook” (anchor) instead of a slip at the marina.

We went for a walk through town and to the dog park for Bailey.  When we got back to the boat it was about 5:00. We had dinner and decided that Bailey would need to learn to go to potty on the boat.

It was a beautiful full moon over the marina and church that is all lite up that night.

After a long day on the boat Thursday trying to encourage Bailey and waiting and waiting still nothing.  40 hours later Bailey finally did her thing on the patch of fake grass.   This was long for all three of us but we needed to make sure Bailey was really going to be a boat dog.  YEA……

On Friday we headed to Orcas Island.  We motored to Eastsound which is suppose to be the biggest town on the island.  You could only anchor out and there really was no access for the dinghy to go ashore, so we decided to go to Rosario Resort.

We have a slip.  Bailey got to go ashore and had a cocktail in the Rosario Resort lounge. Rosario is a mansion built by a shipbuilding magnate in the 1920’s. It is spectacular, they have preserved the original mansion and made it into a resort.

It is really quiet in the winter months but very enjoyable.

Tomorrow is a new day
