And So: the Journey Ends

All good things must come to an end, and our Summer 2016 journey up the Inside Passage to Alaska is no exception. 

Monday morning we pulled the anchor at 6:30 a.m., threaded our way out the unusually shallow channel at Fisherman's Bay on Lopez Island (saw less than a foot of water beneath our hull on the depth sounder, several times, yikes!), and headed south.

The Strait of Juan de Fuca was kind, with light winds and no waves over 3 feet, mostly 1-2 feet. Admiralty Inlet and Puget Sound were calm, sunny and beautiful. And then downtown Seattle and majestic Mt. Rainier came into view.

We headed under the Agate Pass bridge, texted friends Rick and Linda on Bainbridge Island that we were about to pass their home, waved to each other, then pulled into our slip at the marina. And it's a wrap.

The Summer 2016 journey up the Inside Passage was everything Summer 2015 was meant to be, and we're so glad we did this trip. Thanks for following along.

It's good to be home.
