Where have we been?

It’s been a while now since I posted here. I apologize to our faithful reader. There’s been a lot going on for us. We sold our house in Walnut Creek, CA, while we were on vacation in September, bought a house in Poulsbo, WA, and got all our stuff moved. It’s been an interesting and hectic few months.

This past weekend, we tied up one of the last loose ends. We moved the boat out of our slip on Lake Union and into its new home at the Liberty Bay Marina in Poulsbo. Now the boat is ten minutes away instead of a two hour flight from San Francisco. It’s great to be back in the Northwest!

Out through the locks for the last time. Well … not the last time … but the last time we need to go through the locks to get to salt water.

It was a fine sunny day to motor over to Poulsbo. My father-in-law joined me for the journey. Nothing much to report on the way over. The sea was flat, the wind calm, the sun was shining. It was a perfect Northwest day on the water. And the trip was too short. Should have taken the long way around Bainbridge Island.

Here we are in our new home on C dock at the Liberty Bay Marina.

Poulsbo used to be one of our frequent weekend destinations. Now that we live there, we need to find new places to go on the weekends. A terrible problem to have.
