So you're from LaConner, WA?
I visited Seattle in 1995 and spent a lot of time driving north on I-5 exploring the water's edge.
The first trip north I saw a sign to a marina and I pulled off to visit. The water was beautiful. Even if cold. I looked at a LOT of boats that day. An older man came wandering down to see if i needed help, as he had noticed I was going from boat to boat and spending a little time examing them. He told me about a lot of things.
Puget sound is very pretty. I have never seen water as dark blue as that.
Back in the late 70s I was flipping thru Yachting! magazine and learned the city w/ the most sailboats per capita was Seattle. I had thought it would have been someplace like Miami. I knew the water would be cold. I had to see in person just why such a northern port would be so full of sailboaters. I decided it must be because the Sound is HUGE, beautiful, and provides nice sailing waters. And the polar bear sailers don't mind a little cold splash.
Here's to hoping you're out on the water enough for both of us!
