As a long time native I think that the lead photo to your article is a picture of Doe Bay not Eastsound. That's OK 'cause it's prettier and more remote and where I live. But we locals keep it a secret.

Moran State Park is the place to go on Orcas but head out to North Beach for a romantic evening. For a friendly atmosphere that can either be family fun or a romantic evening, Lu Lu's is perfect. Other than that, try out kayaking off Crescent Beach or a hike up Mt. Constitution for some more fun (and another beautiful evening. You can see everything)!

Pilots who fly to Orcas Island Airport will find overnight beneath-the-wing camping available, with ocean views and a hot shower, all less than a 15-minute walk to the village core. It's a great getaway!

erb's Vegetarian Restaurant in downtown Eastsound is a living example of the harmony between farm and restaurant. Our meal had been harvested just that morning. We enjoyed a georgeous Greek Frittata and my friend had Mushroom French Dip. Breakfast and Lunch at the same time. Try their Organic Plum Pie for dessert! Yum!

This article has captured the feel of Eastsound and Orcas Island perfectly. Moran State Park is a treasure - arguably the premier state park in all of Washington. Rosario Resort now offers the historic Moran Mansion as a museum, where you can see the history of the man who built the famous resort, and dedicated the land for Moran State Park.

It might be worth informing the author that there isn't really a mountain range called "whistler mountains", and that it would be quite an accomplishment to see Whistler Mountain from the San Juans unless one had x-ray vision or was at an altitude of several miles. On a clear day it's possible to see the southernmost end of the Coast Mountains that border Vancouver, which are often called the "North Shore" mountains (as they are on Vancouver's north shore)
