Sailing in Circles

For the past month we have been sailing in circles, but not entirely aimlessly. Instead we have been stopping here and there in the San Juan and Canadian Gulf Islands, in Sidney on Vancouver Island and Port Townsend at the mouth of Puget Sound, with the express purpose of visiting with family and friends. The choice protected anchorages are relatively unpopulated during this early summertime - places like Garrison Bay on San Juan Island (shown above, with "Indigo" in the center of the photo) offer great hiking on shore and good kayaking amongst the islands and passages. The weather has been unusually warm and sunny, and there have been plenty of good days for "messing around in boats"

After a brief stop for boatwork in Anacortes, we will straighten out our act, and resume expeditionary mode by heading resolutely north and then around the West Coast of Vancouver Island.

Good to hear from you!

I've been following your Canadian adventures, too, and when it's crazy hot here (most of the time), I find myself a little envious.

The warm water is awfully nice for snorkeling and other watersports, though.

Fair winds,

beautiful new photos... it's hot here today, too... no lawn bowling, however. Could probably pull together a nice game of bocce tomorrow, though.
