How a boat pays its entire self back in one day

Easter is such a time of promise on the church, farming, and boating calendar.
Yesterday, three generations of us gathered on the boat for Easter.
First pic is gramma and the kids in the saloon.
Second pic is a galley abuzz with multiple galley wenches preparing a brunch centered around crepes with homemade butter syrup, fruits, meats, an unbelievable egg scramble with vegetables and of course all topped up with cheese made by this family.

Third pic is a highly competitive, adult kid, boat only based Easter egg hunt. Quite the scurry to find that golden egg with the Starbucks gift card.


Fourth pic is a sunny afternoon cruise of the Seattle waterfront while the kids, now scattered, do some catching up on the foredeck.


Fifth pic is for you flybridge aficionados. Here the captain is foot steering with his head thru the moon roof in the clouds. Flybridge Klee Wyck style....


Freaking priceless......

Fantastic, what a neat way to spend Easter. We call that our Argosy cruise route when taking friends and family out for a spin in the Bay.

Darn, it's a shame nobody was having any fun! Just kidding, of course. Looks like a great time was had by all.

That’s what we are buying with our money. Fun times and the memories of the fun times.

This time Rosario

Since Easter went so well on the boat, we decided to do Mother's Day as well with a different crew, different boat, and different port. Same great outcome.
My youngest has run a trail half marathon on Orcas the last two years so brings his gang of runners for this and then the kids cook his mother breakfast the next day on Mother's Day.
First pic is the kids in the saloon and second is the big breakfast on deck.

The cruising was good too!

The cruise to and from Rosario was good as well, leaving Bellingham for good, visiting Rosario on Orcas Island, and then back to our new home port in Blaine again.

Pics are pilot view, starboard view (Mt. Baker), and port view (Boundary Pass toward the San Juans and Gulf Islands.

With that many friends and family aboard, you need two boats! Good thing y'all know how to have fun.
