A Short Trip

We enjoyed a great but short overnight trip to Blake Island this weekend. The weather was fantastic. It felt very strange. We’ve been boating in this area for a number of years now. During this time, our boat has always lived on or near Lake Union. This was the first trip from our new home in Poulsbo.

The beginning of our adventures all started with a slow trip through the ship canal then out through the locks. The end of the trip was the opposite followed by a plane ride home. Poulsbo has always been a destination. Now it’s home.

We are Anchored at Blake Island

mv Archimedes Blake Island morning 1

It’s a beautiful morning! The weather was so nice yesterday, we decided it would be wrong to not use the boat. So last evening we motored down to Blake Island. We are anchored on the west side of the island. Looks like another great day in the Northwest. Sadly, we are headed back this afternoon. Still have some things to do around the house.

3D Charts, Carved In Wood

You’ve probably seen them, they’re in a number of shops; multiple locales rendered in wood, behind glass. Rusty and I have always looked at them but never bought them. We didn’t have wall space, and couldn’t agree on which one to buy anyway. There’s one of Puget Sound, and of the San Juan Islands, and of the Salish Sea, and … well, how do you choose? They have lots of them, from all over the States, even the Caribbean.
