...or the Powerboater, as the case may be.
While Dreamtime is technically not home yet, our Broughtons Cruise is officially over. Dreamtime is moored at Tacoma Yacht Club after an uneventful run down from Eagle Harbor today. We stopped briefly in Des Moines to fuel up (diesel there is a "bargain" at $2.53/gallon), and arrived at TYC at 1340. She'll stay there until Friday, when we plan to take her around to the Wollochet outstation for two nights. We arranged a trade with our "tenant" whereby he'll move his boat out of our slip two days early and, in return, he can use the slip over the Labor Day weekend.
So ends our summer odyssey. Total days: 87. Total mileage: 1115 nautical miles! Now we look forward to starting on the "punch list" of things that broke along the way. With a bit of luck, they'll all be completed before it's time to leave on next summer's cruise!
Thanks to all who have followed this blog. (We found there were actually more than 2 people watching it. Maybe as many as 5!) We hope you enjoyed sharing our adventures with us.
