Off to Roche Harbor

In an effort to beat the rush for the upcoming Memorial Day, following morning coffee, we took the dinghy to the fuel dock to fill it up. 2.1 gallons was all it took to top it off and then we put it back up for the trip to Roche Harbor. It started as a calm overcast day and quickly turned dark and stormy.


I need to work on my video skills. I had a complete failure today. I recorded 90 minutes in time lapse and it is just too big to use. I'll work on it next time.


We arrived after drenching rain and set the anchor to a nearly empty harbor and the wind kicked up to 20 knots with gusts to 30. I let additional anchor rode out to 200' to achieve a 5:1 scope and we rode it out. Fortunately it only lasted for a couple of hours. Things calmed down after dinner.


When we arrived we finished off the bean soup. Barb got a bit testie and said -- What? you loved the bean soup Sunday and Monday, you Raved about it on Tuesday, enjoyed it on Wednesday and now you start complaining? Well -- it is finished and was certainly good. The grilled cheese sandwich is amazing.



Later on Barb went hog wild and made a thanksgiving feast minus the turkey. It was pretty amazing.



Salad with turnip greens, carrots, tomatoes, turnips and avocado, Roasted vegetables, stuffing, mushrooms and gravy. What a treat. I am stuffed like thanksgiving dinner.


Finally, a bit of light from a weather standpoint. We had a nice view out the window after dinner. It may get brighter.


I feel like this is turning into a food blog and not a travel blog. Well there is time early next month as we head north through Canada.
