Anacortes to Sucia Island, First Night Out

Sunday morning Susan and Bob aboard "Allure" pulled away from Anacortes Marina and we left Cap Sante Marina to meet them in the bay. Their first-time docking getaway went flawlessly! Unfortunately their Raymarine GPS on the chartplotter wasn't flawless.

Susan and Bob had their first experience spontaneously "rafting up" with us out in the bay, so Bob White could jump aboard Bob Shaffer's boat and the two Bobs could trouble-shoot the GPS together. 

Success! Casting off the rafting lines, we headed for Sucia Island, with gorgeous Mt. Baker in the background.

Fossil Bay became our overnight anchorage.

Afternoon exploring in the dinghies yielded wildlife spottings of Dall's porpoises, one bald eagle and a number of seals.

The weather was perfect, warm and sunny, making for a nice beach walk.

Crab dinner aboard "Next To Me" brought a perfect end to a perfect day.
