Woke up to a misty morning today, anchored off the east shore of Blake Island:
But let me tell you how we got here.
We kicked the weekend off in intensive fashion. Adriana tried the paddle board with a little help from Paulo and Raquel, while i did some final errands in pursuit of replacement parts:
Then it was time to let the lines go and set Pesto free for the first time on this journey. Raquel and Adriana took the honors:
We were on the move:
Then we engaged the throttle, and started steaming off:
The way out starts with a channel, and a couple of draw bridges:
Next comes the locks, which allow all vessels to step up or down the 20ft difference between the lake and the sea:
While we were busy handling the lines, Paulo took over the camera – and the sequence below was distilled down from the 100’s of random pics he took within a few minutes:
Well, the lock was emptied, we were lowered the 20ft or so, the huge doors opened up, and we were floating for the first time on this journey on salt water. The transition was not over yet:
Our destination was Blake Island, just one hour away from Seattle.
And that took us to a new neighborhood:
Have a great sunday!
