Too Tall, also, wanted to get a ride on Shatoosh. For 2 days, we ambled over about 35 nm over to Gig Harbor and went through the History Museum where there is an amazing basket collection woven by native Salish Indians. It is breath-taking. I particularly liked the small, intricate baskets woven out of whale baleen. This is something that one rarely sees in one's life.
We cruised out of Gig and ventured across the Narrows to see Salmon Beach houses and to show Too Tall
the new Narrow's Bridge. The people who live at Salmon Beach have a hug staircase to climb to get to their homes. I'm not even going to think about the sewer systems.

We return to my condo and finish the trip with dinner and Too Tall gets to see my booklet on Sailing Sabra from Hawaii to Washington in 1982. It was a fun trip/visit with Too Tall and he certainly enjoyed meeting Corey, who is the perfect keeper of Skol. He can rest assured, that Skol is in the best of hands. It will be fun to follow the remake of Skol. She will be the beauty of the Salish Sea, for certain.
