April Navy Yacht Club Everett Rendezvous in Poulsbo

22 April 2017 | Poulsbo, WA
Ron/Sunny High 63
Alice and I left Elliott Bay this morning around 9am for Poulsbo a short 16 mile trip via Agate Pass. We had light winds and calm seas with clear skies. Easy trip across the sound and through the narrow of Agate Pass. We arrived in Poulsbo in time for lunch. About 21 other boats from our yacht club have arrived. We had a pizza party at the activity float. Looks like a change in weather tomorrow and we may be hunkered down on our boats. We are scheduled for a pot luck dinner tomorrow night. RESTLESS will provide Chicken and Yellow rice as our entry.
We will stay here until Sunday and then head back to Seattle or opt to spend a night in Keyport. Keyport is only about 2 miles from here, but is a nice place to visit.

Another visit to Blake Island, our favorite close destination

Alice and I left Sunday afternoon (22Jan) to spend a couple of days at Blake Island.
Currently, we are the only boat in the marina! Expecting a couple of friends to show up later this afternoon...I see trouble on the horizon! lol

Marine Park Host at Blake Island

10 January 2017 | Blake Island State Park
Ron/ SCA winds Northerly at 25-30kts
My Classmate, Mike Morgan, and I are out at Blake Island this week (8-15 Jan 2017) volunteering as Marine Park Host. We arrived in the rain on Sunday afternoon. Only two boats in the marina on Sunday night. One left Monday morning and the other one left Tuesday morning. A sailboat came in late last night and moored in anticipation of Small Craft Advisory predicted for Tues-Wed.
This morning (Tuesday) after breakfast the winds began to rise and have been steady over 20 knots all day. Predicted to continue throughout the night. We were asked to move the boat this morning to provide more maneuvering room for the State Parks Marine Crew boat, a 75 ft working vessel. So, as the winds increased, Mike and I moved RESTLESS to the other side of the dock. It's been very uncomfortable all day and is probably continue throughout the night.

That hasn't prevented good food preps in the galley. Sunday night was steamed whole live Maine Lobsters. Tonight was fish tacos with Creamy Cilantro Cole Slaw.

I expect a quiet day in the marina tomorrow as weather continues. Lighter winds are predicted for the weekend and we expect a yacht club rendezvous here this weekend. That will keep us busy Friday and Saturday. Mike and I head back to Elliott Bay Marina on Sunday after breakfast.
