Summer of Weekend Cruising - Part I.

I had the best of intentions... I did.  But IT.IS.FALL.

I was going to describe, in detail, all of our cruising destinations.  However, time has escaped me... so we shall have to do with a photo montage...

Evening Kayak, Henry Island
 The kids are getting so BIG.  (Seattle Yacht Club Henry Island Outstation)
Henry Island Sunset
Friends visiting us at Henry Island!
We spent a week at the Seattle Yacht Club Henry Island Outstation (after T's birthday) and then headed north for a weekend in Bedwell Harbor (just over the border into British Columbia).  T was able to commute (via dinghy) to work while we were at Henry Island.
