Bad weather at Orcas Island

This is what we woke up to this morning. Going to be a rough trip home.

Yep, it was bad weather like that, that allowed me to visit all the islands in my dinghy.

Saw a lot of bad weather like that up north.

The sun usually whips up some westerlies that will make nice chop and I see you've got sun. Good luck.

Overcast and no low pressure system nearby will almost guarantee bad weather.... the kind I'm going to be looking for in the south sound this winter.
