Mariners Report from the San Juan Islands


With the weather forecast for a week of sun, we used our retirement card, cast off the lines and set sail for the San Juans.

These two sketches of the cabin top under the dodger are actually contour ink (no pencil first).


This cute little tug was right behind us in Reid Harbor on Stuart Island.
We hiked out to the Turn Point Lighthouse the next day.


While we were waiting for slack tide to return to Lagoon Point, we checked out the Wooden Boat Show at Port Townsend.
