The best boating season
Took the boat out last weekend for an overnight in a small bay about 2 hours from Bellingham. This is our favorite kind of boating. Nobody else out there, crisp, cold day, patchy fog.
In the summer this bay is chock full of boats but last weekend we were the only boat there. Wonderful quiet. The only sounds other than the birds were the occasional echoing horns from the trains running along the mainland coast.
The tanker with its Foss tug brake and rudder was leaving the Vendovi anchorage where tankers wait to be loaded or unloaded at the Anacortes, Ferndale, and Cherry Point refineries.
