Ralph and I worked our way down from Desolation Sound, where we spent an amazing 3 weeks. The weather could not have been better and the water was as warm at 78 degrees in some places, averaging 70. We got a bit of sailing in, and have been having a great time. We crossed back in to the USA and spent 3 days at Sucia Island in the San Juan’s – what a beautiful place.
While we were in Desolation Sound the smoke rolled in from the BC wildfires and there was smoke everywhere for a couple weeks. I didn’t take a lot of photos in the smoke so we are bit short on photos this time.
Amy, Jacob and Amy’s boyfriend Drew joined us in Anacortes for several days. We had such a wonderful time, it was really sweet to be with all of them for a little while. We are leaving Anacortes today, our plan is to spend some time in the San Juan’s before heading back to Canada and to the Gulf Islands for a while before we put the boat away. For the last 10 days or so the winds are southerly and it has gotten colder. We hope to squeeze at least a few more weeks of summer out of the area. Fingers crossed.
