Let the voyage begin!

The day has finally come to cast off the lines and head downriver. Our neighbor Mike Brown is along for the ride. It's a beautiful day, but the forecast for offshore will probably keep us in Astoria for a couple of days. There was a huge barge coming downriver just as we left the dock. The I-5 bridge had to be lifted, and traffic was backed up for miles. Don't mean a thing to us! Light breeze and plenty of time, so we're tacking downriver. Anchored for the night in Walker Island Slough.
