The Daffodil Yacht Parade-Tacoma Yacht Club

Berthing your boat at the Foss Harbor Marina certainly had its advantages. They put on a Pancake Breakfast and then we had front row viewing of the annual Daffodil Parade, which I have never seen. The Skagit Valley is noted for its tulips, but the Puyallup Valley is noted for its Daffodil farms and parades.

Welcome 48 North Readers

Today, marks a new beginning. Richard Hazelton, the editor for 48 North has officially added The Adventures of Shatoosh and Pashmina to their list of special cruising blogs. 48 North is a sailing magazine for the Pacific Northwest and an important one because of the volumes of readers around the world. While all the other blogs mentioned are out sailing the open oceans of the world and circumnavigating the globe, I choose to remain within sight of land and enjoy flat water most of the time. Many thanks Richard for giving us a spot to park ourselves within the covers of your wonderful magazine.

He also has printed in the 2014 April issue a Letter to the Editor which I wrote about the Peter Puget Memorial Project and its blog. See pages 6, and 13.

If you are reading this blog for the first time, Welcome. Shatoosh(my Albin 25), Pashmina(my dinghy) and I have lots of fun cruising the Salish Sea and working on the Peter Puget Memorial Project. We love having new readers, so please let me hear from you by email(
