San Juan Summer
06 June 2014 | Roche Harbor, San Juan Island, Washington
Clear and warm
We are being treated to an early summer here. The weather has been mostly warm and dry for the past five days, and good weather should continue for a few more days.
Last Tuesday, Kathleen and Jack returned to Portland. My good friend Yoga Jim, his nephew Chris, and Chris's girlfriend Raquel joined me for a short cruise. We went up to Echo Bay on Sucia our first night. The place was practically empty. Great sunset that night.
Yesterday we got a few hours of sailing from Sucia to Roche Harbor. But as the old saying goes, "You know how to stop the wind in the San Juan's? Put up your sails."
We wandered into Roche without knowing this was a power boat weekend festival. There are only 3 sailboats on the entire guest dock.
We're off to Stuart Island today, and back to Orcas on Saturday.
All is well here. I have to pinch myself when I see Wilparina in this new environment. Wow ... after three years, it's happening for real.
