We got back in time to prepare Shatoosh and, of course, the wind came up pushing us into the dock.. We pulled out in reverse, kicking my starboard stern around...I do love that Volvo left hand prop. Just outside the marina we turn and see the Olympics in snow against the blue skies and green trees. There is nothing more beautiful.
At 1030 we hear the Victoria Coast Guard reporting a capsized vessel 2 nm south of Cape Flattery. Also, the Puget Sound CG, announced that at 0800 hrs someone was lost in the water, and later recovered. The seas are flat, a westerly swell 1 ft and minimal wind.
1120 we are approaching the Dungeness Lighthouse, so we pull in closer to take a photo and cruise the beautiful sandy spit in 24 ft of water. Joyce had walked that spit some years ago. The tide is on our side now and we are swiftly moving between 7- 10. 3 knots.
