Pashmina goes to her winter home

The last two posts have been from my blogger app. I'm trying it out as it is easier to post iPhone photos and simple posts 

After my return from Blake Island this weekend I decided to go ahead and put Pashmina on the hardtop for her winter stay. I motored into the Foss Waterway to Johnnies Seafood dock which was empty. I placed Pashmina onto to the dock and used my hoist to get her top sides. This was the first time for me to do this single-handed. Even though there was a breeze over the stern I managed the task rather easily.

Blake Island State Park

  Peggy a new crew member joined me for 3 days at Blake. She had been 10 years ago but never attended the salmon bake and program. Now there is so much more, a bistro, gift shop, museum, word carver and book store. Every time I go something new has been added. We had a delightful time and it is always fun to take someone new to share in our adventures. Thanks Peggy for coming along. Here is your Haiku:

A Dinner Cruise

Visitors from Palm Desert boarded Shatoosh after
dinner at Johnnies Seafood,  a cruise out the Foss Waterway into Commencement Bay and over to Browns Point Lighthouse and back. The sun setting westward to the Olympics and eastward to Mt Rainier was spectacular and the city became a cascade of lights as we docked and celebrated the wonderful evening and company with champagne. It was very dark when I get Shatoosh secured in her slip.
