Friday Harbor to Bellingham

Up at 5:30, a quick shower and cast off at 6:15. We used the “turning basin” adjacent to Dock D to get the bow pointed in the right direction and slipped out of Friday Harbor in the early light. Karen took the first watch and noted the rising sun in her eyes made it hard to see the electronic displays.

We traded watches in two hour intervals and the “off-duty” person used their time to finish up packing and cleaning the boat. It’s now 9:43 and we are 12 minutes out from the fuel docks at Bellingham. Karen reiterates that she does not want the trip to end. It was an indeed a great trip down the West Coast of Vancouver.  Pacific Northwest cruising never disappoints.
