I returned from Seattle to find everything on Coda doing just fine. I once again joined the on-going san wandering flotilla in Blind Bay and Hunter Bay on the way back to Utsalady bay to pick up my son (this is the same Nick from fishing in Ketchikan) and his financee, Marissa. I told them I would take them to the airport and to visit Kaitlyn and Matteo.
I picked them up in Utsalady bay and we had a beautiful cruise to Shilshole marina.
The return of Barbara!
Barbara flew back to Seattle to continue on another adventure on Coda. Matt and Tonia had hosted Barb on their boat while I returned and they all came to meet us at Shilshole marina where Barb made a huge dinner at Nick's request. It was all vegetarian and very delicious.
We drove to visit Kaitlyn, Josh and Matteo and had a great Indian meal with them. I then dropped Nick and Marissa off at the airport to returned to Coda.
I guess this concludes the Alaskan adventure as I am now officially in Seattle. I am sad to see it finished, but stay tuned. Coda is in need of a bit of TLC -- but the blog does not stop here!
