Back to the Lime Kiln Cafe for a hearty breakfast. Took our time as we waited for the 12:15 slack at Speiden Channel, headed for Deer. Garrison was so crowded I had a Bayliner waiting for my spot as I pulled anchor. That's a first. Once at Deer we made a dash for the pool. Timed it perfectly as we had it all to ourselves for an hour. Soon other families arrived - time to go Jake! Capped the day with dinner at the Deer Harbor Inn. Another seafood fest where I ate most of Jake's. I like eating with Jake.
This is the final stop and official end to the trip. :( Close to 500 nautical miles, 100 engine hours and 140 gallons of diesel. Pretty awesome I must say. :)

Started the morning off with a dinghy ride to the Lime Kiln Cafe for a big breakfast, quickly followed by a trip to the pool. Jake later wanted to run through the multi million dollar Ocean Alexander's they had open for display. Talking to the broker I learned the new, 3 or 4 million dollar, 90' that burned and sank at Roche sold to a Turkish man for $38,000 to be restored. Curious how that turns out.
Later forced Jake on a hike then back to Roche for some crab mac & cheese and a cheeseburger in paradise. So good! :)

Up at 8 and headed for Garrison Bay. First we have to clear customs. They're not very nice and it's clear they don't want us back in. But after we paid the $27 fee we're cleared. We make a beeline for Garrison and it's packed with boats. The goal is always to anchor by as many sailboats as you can because they don't have generators that run all day and night.
Jake and I had some pool time then kayaking and off to the pub for a cheesburger. Jake prefers the crab mac and cheese. Then nothing better than the long dinghy ride back to the boat, at sunset, doing 25 knots. :)
