Packing the boat

This is the day before we left. All this gear needed to be stowed away on the boat.

Cutting the dock lines.

Friends came down to literally cut the dock lines to send us off on our trip. We appreciated and enjoyed everyone coming down.

First night of our cruise

We are exhausted after packing all day, the boat is a mess.

Roche Harbor, Lopez Island

In the summer there would be dozens of boats in this picture. In April we are the only boat anchored.

Storm Sails

Testing out the storm sails with Carol Hasse. These are the sails we would use when it gets really nasty out. Hopefully we never need to use them.

Buchart Cove, BC

Small cove behind Buchart Gardens. We arrived to late in the afternoon to visit the gardens today.
