Finally - some decent sailing on our way back south to Anacortes. On Thursday the 5th we left Chemainus and ended up at Port Browning on North Pender Island. There was a wedding at a nearby house on shore that evening, complete with flamenco dancing that suited the hot sultry weather.
On Friday we had a very nice day of sailing across Boundary Passage, south through the San Juans to Friday Harbor, where we cleared US customs, and then on to Spencer Spit (Lopez Island) where we dropped the hook for the night. After a great walk along the spit, we met Galen and Shelly on Nirvana, a brand new (to them) Ericson 38 like ours. Its always fun to meet people who validate your own choice of boat :) and we discovered we had other things in common, like a love for SCUBA diving in the Caribbean. I hope our wakes will cross again soon.
Yesterday we pulled into Anacortes for some final adjustments to the rigging work that was done this spring in PDX. We only have a few more days on the boat this time around. Thursday we'll tie her up at the marina in Bellingham and drive home for a two week break from sailing.
