When you see that a magical moment just on the horizon, you’ve got to take action.
Make it happen.
Don’t think, just go.
As we were leisurely packing things up in our rental house on Orcas Island on the morning of our departure, such an opportunity came our way.
A seaplane landed in Cascade Bay just across the way. And as we learned from our few days, as well as just being the Pacific Northwesterners that we are, it’s inevitable: If a seaplane lands, it’s surely going to take off again. They just don’t tend to hang around long.
We made a mad dash to the dock: Shoes, leashing up Norman and throwing on coats to shield us from the sprinkles happening outside. Thankfully we were already dressed and raring to go, otherwise it may have been more of an ordeal and knowing.
