The anchor came up at 8:05 this morning and we were on our way to Port Townsend. It was another beautiful morning in Garrison Bay. This the first time we’ve been here. It was pretty shallow when I got up in the morning. Low tide. Seven feet.
We were expecting fog in the strait. It’s that time of year. We can almost guarantee fog at the traffic lanes in Admiralty Inlet. And foggy most everywhere else. We’ve heard the Coast Guard announcing low visibility the last few days.
Garrison Bay was clear. As soon as we got out to the west side of San Juan Island, we encountered the fog.
And then the world disappeared. It was all chartplotter, AIS, Radar, and Seattle Traffic all the way to Point Hudson.
It was an uneventful and not particularly interesting crossing. 4 hours of motoring along and watching screens. Just a few other boats around us. We talked with Seattle Traffic (VTS) a few times along the way. We didn’t see land again until we reached Point Wilson. And even then, just a glimpse every now and then.
Here we are. Point Hudson Marina. Slip #1. Right out on the end. It looks a little like we are at the edge of the world. The fog and overcast never did lift in Port Townsend. We haven’t seen weather like this for a while now. All the sun and warm has us kinda spoiled.
Here’s Renegade coming in behind us. She was on the dock with us a few days ago in Genoa Bay. Renegade is a 37′ Victory Tug.
Yikes! What happened here? This boat was on a trailer at the Northwest Maritime Center.
That’s about it. A not very interesting crossing. I cleaned the boat some this afternoon. Kim went in to town. There will be more of the same tomorrow. We are here one more day. Then it is off to Seattle.
Tonight the fog is back.
