A look at all the great events on Orcas Island and the San Juan Islands
(Tuesday, April 24; 7 pm @ the Orcas Senior Center)
This past summer, Orcas Islanders Shawna Franklin and Leon Somme took 44 days away from their kayak school, Body Boat Blade, to paddle around Vancouver Island – a challenge for the most seasoned paddler with some of the fastest ocean currents and tidal races in the world. They encountered a plethora of wildlife including wolves, bears, mink, whales, sea lions, sea otters and more! Admission is by donation – and all proceeds will go to support our public schools through the Orcas Island Education Foundation.
