We pull into a new harbor to us, Brownsville Marina. They say it is a quiet marina, so we check it out. They have a nice deli and Joyce finally gets to order her hot dog. We bring 2 back and have lunch on the boat. Then depart again at 1240. This will be a place I'd like to return.
At 1330 we slip thru Rich Passage going 8.5 k and 10 minutes later we follow the shoreline south to the Dock at Manchester, where tomorrow we will pick up a friend, Linda, so she can attend the Tillicum Indian Salmon Bake with us.
1410 we have barely secured a dock space: first come, first serve. The docks are jammed packed with boats. Joyce walks some on the island and I chat with several of the boaters. Everyone is surprised that we have taken the outside route. It has been a beautiful day with amazing views of the snow capped Olympics, snow capped Cascades, snow laden Mt Rainier, and the Seattle skyline. There is nothing like a sunny pacific northwest day.
Day's run 15nm
Total: 436 nm.

|What a beautiful day.|
