Doe bay Resort and Retreat

Solo travel is a must


My first solo healing retreat, doe bay resort.


I pulled an 80 hour week and needed a break. An actual healing retreat costs a bomb. So I went DIY. A 1.5 hour from Seattle to Anacortes -> a ferry ride with my car -> A drive to the other side of the island and I was there.

Thumbs up features: Birthday suit Sauna and Jacuzzi, yoga classes at 9:00 a.m. with a water-view <3, massage parlor, store, restaurant, a yard adjacent to the bay, a farm, suites with an attached kitchenette, library, wifi, camping space

Thumbs down features: Spotty wifi, mediocre room service, not good value for money for the suite, restaurant closes early and is closed a couple of days of the week, distance from grocery store

The best thing was going offline for a bit. I could be spontaneous. Ask around what’s an offbeat thing to do and go for it. I went to Lambiel’s museum, drove to Rosario, went to the farmer’s market, took a random hike but mostly chilled at the resort. Moran state park, kayaking and hanging out at the boutique shops are the standard things to do and I’d covered them all in a previous trip. It was a good hippie experience 🙂

Pro Travel Tip 5: Make a solo trip once in your life

You’ll discover new interests and learn your own pace

Passion for Possibility

I try new things a lot. My main motivation for this blog was the fact that though I have platforms to publish family friendly excerpts of my travel elsewhere, I need one that isn’t. So I’ll share some perfectly legal things to do around the hood here 😉 I’ll keep the content short and sweet. No full itineraries and minimum scrolling.


The picture above was taken at Cacimba do padre, Fernando De Noronha, Brazil. To give you some context, I made the mistake of not wearing a bikini that day. So some friendly locals invited me to a BBQ and a lady took my dress off till my waist. I hung out in my bra and my dress as a sarong. The picture above is photoshopped some to add contrast and make it not look obviously like a bra.

Pro Travel Tip 1 ladies and gentlemen: – Carry swimwear for every day of your trip in Brazil. Somebody is going to drag you in the water 😉

Pro Travel Tip 2: Carry condoms

Pro Travel Tip 3: Learn the local translations of 5 words at a MINIMUM wherever you go:

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Slow
  4. Fast
  5. Toilet
