I’m looking forward to sharing more highlights from our trip to SE Asia, but right now I am taking the long motor home across the Salish Sea, so I thought I’d try out my mobile blogging skills and share some highlights of living on the Salish Sea.
Worthy of an entire post of its own, we enjoyed many lunches at our beloved Rose’s Restaurant, a gem in the San Juan archipelago.
The epitome of “elegant food in a rustic setting”
We also made many of our favorite meals with friends, including Flank Steak al Grecco…
And Salade Nicoise.
Washed down with rosé our our favorite Entre du Mer, a perfect summer wine.
After a week on Orcas Island we headed north on the boat. Destination: Desolation Sound.
Where we try to live off the sea. The greatest prize is always the Spot prawns.
Island art at Walsh Cove, a favorite spot for a mermaid cocktail party.
Signs of previous inhabitants on Ballenas Island.

Type “Salish Sea” into the search box for more stories and recipes from this amazing, warm water paradise.
On the way back down we stopped on Orcas to harvest some bounty. Our peach tree produced so much fruit this year! For a fireside dinner last night I used some to make individual peach crumbles, and they were positively delicious, if I do say so myself. I’m think of making peach jam with the rest, unless you have a better suggestion?
My neighbors garden had an abundance of tomatoes this year. They were amazing in last nights ratatouille.
These pears and apples will last through September in a cool location.
Alright, must get out of my seat now, because the only certainty while boating is that everyone is always hungry and Captain Splendid is giving me “the look”.
Making him Salade Nicoise… thanks for reading my first mobile post…. can’t wait to see how it looks when I’m back on the mainland.
Uh oh, grumblings… Really must fly…
