It is Wednesday, the 15th, and we are in Pt. Ludlow for the night then home tomorrow. We had a great couple days with Garry’s nephew Dennis and his family, but home was beckoning, so after spending yesterday with them at Reid Harbor we pulled out at 6:30 this morning and headed to the Straits of Juan de Fuca. We had a good crossing except for one little swell that caused Garry’s breakfast plate to slide off the counter and land upside down on the floor. He had made a wonderful breakfast, so we instituted the 5 second rule – extended it to 15 seconds – and he was able to finish. We put on some fuel in Pt. Townsend but just enough for a cushion to get home as Des Moines fuel is almost 60 cents a gallon less!
The trip has been wonderful. We went to something like 9 or 10 new places or places we have not been to in over 20 years. We met some great people; had no run ins with not so great people; had good water and fantastic weather. We are always grateful for friends who let us use their docks, their cars, electricity and sometimes even their tools. And we always enjoy meeting up with all our boating friends at different times.
This may be my last post for awhile. I think I’ll be doing laundry for a week or so. Thanks to everyone who reads my blog. I enjoy doing it and I hope you all have enjoyed our adventures this summer!
