If you’re ever up on Orcas in the fall/winter when there are less visitors, I recommend heading to Doe Bay. If you can get there on a Monday/Tuesday, around 2/3pm, you might find yourself in the most zend-ridden state of mind. I’ve sat in their open area by myself at times with a beer and I have to say, I just don’t know of anything more peaceful. There is a restaurant here which has great food (their crepe dish is a staple). There is also a small store to grab a beer, t-shirt and maybe a hat? Why not!! You may want to check their business hours before going. There is also the Doe Bay Festival every year which usually posts a great lineup of musicians. I know I say every place is my favorite, but this place is my favorite favorite!!
