    The Maiden statue

    This carved wooden statue of a native Samish maiden is between the beach and the point at Rosario Beach, on the Fidalgo Island side of the park. Her legend is recorded on two plaques, describing how her father gave her in marriage to a sea god in order to ensure plentiful seafood for his people. She went to live in the sea and over the years started gradually turning into a sea creature herself. One side of the statue shows her before the transformation and the other side after, with her hair turning to kelp and her body growing scales.

    There is so much to do there as I noted in the overview, but the the main attraction is the natural beauty in a variety of forms and "La Dolce Far Niente," the sweetness of doing nothing!
