A trip home

We’ve been away from the boat yard for almost two weeks.  We started our time by attending the Sceptre rendezvous on Vancouver Island (in Mill Bay, which is near Victoria). It was such a great time with our friends and we thoroughly enjoyed it.  I participated in my first sailboat race, which I really liked.  The winds were very light, so it was pretty mellow.  We came in 3rd! Also, our team won the dinghy rally – woo hoo! Mill Bay is lovely and we stayed at an apartment through Airbnb that was so comfortable and beautiful. It was a great weekend.

We took the ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles and then started the drive home.  It was pleasant drive and we had a nice time. We picked up Jacob in San Luis Obispo and got to spend a little time with him before we headed to San Diego for Amy’s graduation. We all enjoyed the commencement and are so proud of Amy.

Tomorrow we are leaving to drive back to the Pacific Northwest – we are getting good at this route. Hope to be back in the water soon!
