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 weren’t the only ones taking advantage of the fine weather. We anchored at the south end of the string of mooring buoys. By sunset, most all the buoys were occupied.
A sailboat sails away from its overnight mooring at Blake Island.
Looks like a sailboat race in Rich Passage.
It’s going to take some time getting used to our new home. It’s a bit like being on vacation all the time. I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
