Helios left Breakwater with Paxton and Vern putting away the lines and fenders. It was a motor to Poulsbo as the only wind we saw above 5 knots was when we got to Liberty Bay. I had called yesterday about a reservation and the marina said don't worry just pull in and take whatever slip you want. We took the last 40' slip closest to shore on the gas dock side of E dock at around 2:30. After we had power hooked up the boys headed to town to see what was going on. They returned around 4:30 and we discussed dinner options and decided on Sogno for pizza, which was very good, and then stopping by the ice cream stand for a couple scoops each. The boys headed up to the park for a while, then returned to watch the game on their ipad, and afterwards Skype with Clair and Maddie, who are in San Antonio.
