"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." -Mark Twain

So, a few things have happened since our last blog...we left the dock!! Week 1 has been full of little speed bumps and unexpected challenges. Things that worked just fine days before have suddenly decided to give up the ghost. Namely, the diesel heater and the water heater. Yes, it is August and everything is great during the day, but things get cold during the night. Also, a boat with no heat welcomes dew in the early morning hours. We spent a few days on the hook (at anchor) in Eagle Harbor and in Port Ludlow, but the last two nights we have been tied up to the dock at the marina up in Friday Harbor so that we could use our electric heater.

Our staysil didn't fit into our new Profurl furler initially, so we just got it back from the sailmaker with a new bolt rope in the luff. We will be hanging around the San Juans until we're able to get the diesel heater oil metering unit mailed to us, which will likely happen on Monday. Then we will be off to Port Angeles for a night before heading out to Neah Bay to await a good weather window, which will likely happen sometime around the 23rd. Then it will take approximately two days to sail to Newport, Oregon.
