Had a nice Memorial Day:
Knocked off work a bit early, and took my 14-year-old daughter and her friend to Eagle Harbor/Winslow, which is on Bainbridge Island, which is about 7 miles west of Seattle.
Had to motor there from Edmonds, but with a 1.5 knot flood tide, we got there in good time, and arrived at 7 PM. I was amazed to find that there was only one other boat on the city dock, and we tied up.
I let the kids have free run on this nice little town, including kayaking in the bay. We stayed in touch by VHF, which was a good way to teach my daughter radio protocol.
We left Saturday evening, against that flood tide now, and got in around 9:00.
Sunday afternoon, we decided to sail to Edmonds, which is where we keep our boat, had a day sail, and barbequed at the dock. A very nice evening.
Marty (blt2ski) was out all weekend.
Didn't run into any drunken people afloat.
