Things are slowly getting back to "normal." As normal as the next couple months can be, that is. We're moved into our temporary housing, thanks to a very good and kind friend who offered her cabin for the whole time we need it, until we leave the island.
As you can see, it really can't be beat.
It's one room, with no running water or electricity, but the location is spectacular. It's on the west side of the island, overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Haro Strait, and the Olympic Mountains. The whole front of the house is windows, looking out over the water.
Every morning, we've seen orca whales passing by. If you click to enlarge this picture, you can see the six-foot-tall dorsal fin of a large male to the right of the picture.
The first morning, I watched a pair of bald eagles catch a salmon and eat it on the rocks right in front of the cabin.
And of course, the sunsets are glorious.
I feel very lucky.
