But Bill also had good times sailing on Double Take on Round the County, Puget Sound races and Swiftsure, Neptune's Car on the Oregon Offshore and Night Runner on part of the VanIsle race.
In May, we gave up the apartment and moved back aboard. After a few nice weekends with friends at Port Madison, Winslow and Port Blakely. Jarana left Seattle for points north on June 26th. Some highlights were:
Friday Harbor with friends Werners
Henry Island (heavenly)
Victoria, with cruiser friends Marchants and Ellsays
Sidney with Seth Seigal and Mary Doherty
After a quick stopover at Nanaimo, we're now cruising the Broughton Islands and further north into British Columbia (BC) with Roger & Lynne Werne. We visited Tribune Bay, Cortes Island, Shoal Bay, Forward Inlet, Harvey Bay, and Potts Lagoon. Tonight we're at Sointula, a pleasant village on Malcolm Island. They marina provides bright pink bicycles, so we took a ride.
A couple days ago, we had a great sail up Johnstone Strait with a pod of porpoises. The winds have been mainly northerly, and mainly sunny skies... no rain so far! Amazing!
Today, we saw a small whale we couldn't identify and eagles fishing near Alert Bay.
