so it’s august 23rd, and we are on day 5 of our annual 2 week cruise. I’m escaping a brutal hot sunshine that surprised us out of nowhere about 2 hours ago. I think I’ve become entirely unaccustomed to sunshine after the non-summer Washington has experienced this year.So far we have spent a couple of nights at anchor, then yesterday ended up taking shelter at a little marina because it was pouring rain so hard we were both drenched trying to get to Friday Harbor.
Now we’re at FH for a night, waiting on friends who are joining us. Tomorrow it’s Pt. Townsend, where I’ve not visited since I was a little kid, and then this year instead of going North to the Gulf Islands, we’re headed for Seattle instead. It’s weird how we never have considered doing that by boat. I think it was the right decision given what the weather is suppose to be like north of us.
Anyhow, I’m trying a couple of new things with this post. One, I am using a bluetooth keyboard with my iPad, so it’s like typing on a tiny little laptop. And two, I’m using the Blogsy app to do the post, so we’ll see how it works. I’ve had the app since I got my iPad, but I hadn’t tried it until now. If all goes well, I might try to figure out how to post pictures, because it’s soooo beautiful wandering around the PNW via boat.
FH is nice, I just stopped by the bookstore (an now reading Karen Russell’s ‘Swamplania’, so far verdict is AMAZING writer), went by the little floating seafood shop for a crab and some ahi tuna, and have a lovely chilled glass of Rosé in my hand. In short, it’s starting to feel like vacation! yay!~Janie
