This weekend I sailed with J and Impulsive to Langley, WA
. The day began with RAIN. The cure to that was to go shopping! We each got some nice items at Fisheries Supply to keep us extra dry for the weekend. I hadn't planned on adding a green fishermans hat to my wardrobe this season, but that's my style choice for now.
I did get a tiny bit of knitting in,
but not as much as I expected. Since the winds were 15-30 Knots, I wasn't fit to knit with the tiny sea sick feeling you get. I was happier in the cockpit in the rain than down below with the diesel heater. Silly how that is.
When we got to Langley, we headed up the hill from the marina to do the little tour. Most stores were closed for the night, but there was enough light to window-shop and we did manage to go inside the grocery store. Our brilliant dinner idea didn't work so well. Roasted veggies took like 3 hours! We kept poking the potatoes and thought they were still raw, but really they were DRYING OUT! Oh well.
Jandellyn and Johnathan stopped by Impulsive about 11PM to say hi, they live on the island, it's kind of fun to go to visit someone on a boat. Jandellyn though out Port
was a little hard to swallow, funny, I think it's devine!
Sunday - less rain and wnd than expected. Really pretty much no rain! Oh yeah - I love auto pilot too.... it's so wonderful. No one else was sailing on the sound, so very easy to manuver our way home. We saw seals and porpises and lots of birds. The grebes made cute noises.
Very relaxing Sunday evening - Very decent dinner too. Watched the movie Ray.
NOW - time to work - so sad the weekend is over - It ended much too quickly.
