John treated us to fresh Blueberry muffins when we got up this morning in Silva Bay. They were still piping hot! Awesome!! After coffee and waiting for the current, we left Silva Bay and motored to Roche Harbor. We went on the Georgia Strait side of Valdes Island and entered Tricomali Channed via Porlier Pass to lessen the effects of the southerly winds we were facing. We cleared customs then proceeded to the SYC Outstation at Henry Island. It's great to be back in the US! We had a crab dip appetizer followed by the remaining filet of the king salmon Willie caught. Mike cooked the salmon to perfection on Restless' grill. We added yellow rice and stewed tomatoes. Another most excellent dinner. After dinner we watched the final two episodes of Victory at Sea! We will have a breakfast aboard Restless tomorrow before we leave. Eggs to order, sausage, bacon, toast, and cheese grits!
We have decided to return to Edmonds via the Swihomish Channel due to predicted high winds in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. So we have a 37 mile day tomorrow and will spend the night in LaConner. We still plan to arrive in Edmonds late afternoon on Monday.
We have dinner reservations for 10 at Arnies in Edmonds.
