A month later and we have only made it to Half Moon Bay ( In Canada, of course) , what a cool little place! The locals greater us at there public dock and asked all kinds of questions. Wish we had done this a few years ago! We are having a great time!
All I can say is don't wait, go!
Hope to meet up with a few of you soon! We will be in Pender Harbor tomorrow for a few days, then up the straight to Chatterbox Falls. I'll try and get a few pics uploaded, that's normally the Admirals job as she does the blog updates, but I'll see if I can get her laptop for a few minutes to send some pics. This one is at Whidbey Island.
Cheers all!

Left Chatterbox Falls the other day, what a great trip up the Inlet. The amount of water running in all the falls is unbelievable. Probably won't last but a few more weeks as the snowfall is melting quick. The weather has been awesome, mild wind and temps in the low 70's. Gonna get a bit cooler for the next week or so with some rain. "Pairadice" needs a good bath, so with the water restrictions in effect a couple days rain should help to wash off some of the salt.

Was wondering what to do next when.....

Standing in the cockpit when who should pull up right behind me. The ASD made it.

Tom and Kay were a great surprise here in Port Mcneill. Happy hour on our boat then had a little party at the Pub with our Canadian friends Bill and Wendy on another Selene.

Then it was back to the dock for more adult beverages and Cigars!

Shame we had to leave at 5am the next morning, we made it to Shearwater this afternoon. We hope to meet up again.

What a great story! I love it when TFer's get the opportunity to meet.

There are so many great folks here. Without an airplane at my disposal anymore, I'm gonna have to start expanding my cruising horizons to meet some of you folks!

Cheers!!

Thanks Al! If you only knew how close I was to hitting the Horn button when we pulled away from the dock...but at 5 Am, well you get the Idea.
Tom and Kay are gonna be up in Alaska soon, we won't go there till next year. But we do plan to meet up in the Broughtons in a month or so. Lots of lies to tell still!

Hey...how did our wives/SOs get out of order? We should enter this as a 'Match The SO With The Member" game for a TF Prize Basket. I've got a Balmar Alternator Temp Sensor to throw in.

There Back!

This afternoon it was pouring down rain here in Shearwater and who comes cruising by? You guessed it, ASD!
Another great time with Kay putting on a Fish Taco feed, MMMMMMM....
And Tom gave us a Gumby Suit demo.

I gotta tell you guys that I am sooooooooo envious of all of you up there having all that fun (and beer!). I hope you don't use up all of the fun before I get the chance to get up that direction.
