Sailing Isabella & now the Beachcomber
Summer Time
Rod........ Nice weather
07/07/2015, Deception Pass, WA

Summer is a time that we and many of our friends put away their boats and head north to escape the heat & humidity of the more tropical areas of the planet. We hope to see a few of you this summer even though we seem to be more spread out.
We have been working on the cabin, building decks & BBQ spaces for ourselves & those friends to come & visit.
We also need to welcome a few new to the neighborhood. New neighbors are most always fun....... Especially these guys. We always seem to get along........

Bringing one of these guys home can be a big challenge these days, you can only use barbless hooks & you can only keep them if they are between 26 & 36" in our waters. This one was 32" & you have to be really careful of the teeth........ But very tasty.........

Life is Good...... Heading north for the summer brings a big change in lifestyle. Now we are but 20 minutes from Jane's Mom & 700 miles from my folks & as they don't seem to be getting any younger we really cherish & enjoy the time we get to spend with them in the summer.
But we also get to do some fishing & boating back in the Pacific NW.
This last week found us Lingcod fishing less than a mile from our cabin at Deception Pass & we even caught fish. We had a great Mothers Day dinner with Jane's Mom of fresh fish & are preparing to head out for more.

On the hard

We put Beachcomber (Our Lagoon 35 Catamaran) on the hard in Marina Seca Guaymas at the beginning of the month & are now up at our Deception Pass cabin for the summer, enjoying the contrast from the other half of the year on Beachcomber in Mexico. It's kind of crazy, but I will say when we are on the boat in Mexico we miss our lives in Cornet Bay on Whidbey Island & when we are here we miss our lives & friends in Mexico........ Go figure......

This spring Marina San Carlos is more beautiful than ever with the hills around the marina as green as I have ever seen them & flowers everywhere. It is really amazing, the locals informed me that they had record rains in Nov. Jan. & Feb. this year & it really shows. If you haven't been up this way before, it is worth a trip just to see it. It is hard to believe it's the desert.

And a few days later - Puerto Escondido. The last few years Puerto Escondido seems to be hit or miss..... You never know what you will find.... It's good to find that the fuel dock actually has fuel, as that's not always the case & we like to be topped up before we head across to San Carlos.
