What an absolutely gorgeous day for a boat ride. The seas were calmer this morning, so Stella had no interest in steering through what she called “sissy” seas. We had a great view of Mt. Baker directly to the north, the Olympics to our port, and the Cascades to our starboard.
Of course, I didn’t get to sightsee as much as I would have liked, because it was the opening day of shrimping season, and many areas we had to go through were verifiable mine fields of buoys marking shrimp traps.
We got to the marina just as the annual season opening boat parade was starting up. Some of the boats were hilarious. Pic below for an example.
We made it to the Everett marina before noon, and we’re enjoying lunch at Scuttlebutts.
More later. Gotta eat. 😃
