Later this afternoon we took the boat out for a little cruise out toward Fort Worden and Point Wilson just for fun. It was 3pm when we left, so it was a short one, since sunset is at like 2pm these days! (Okay 4:23pm. Still.)
Heron on the way out of the marina:
Fort Wordon lighthouse:
And from the other side of Point Wilson:
And this is looking at the Point Hudson Marina from the water. Airship is moored at the left of the frame, right between that tall red marker and the other tall boat (a Nordhaven 47) that pulled in this afternoon while we were exploring (we're short, so you can't see us):
We're having a cocktail and some snacks now (salmon and albacore pâté from Seabolt's Smokehouse on Whidbey (SO good), cucumbers-as-crackers, and some Spanish chorizo and Saucisson from Olympic Provisions in Portland) now, and a bit later we'll grill a piece of king salmon we picked up locally, with a side salad for dinner.
Oh yeah, I keep forgetting to show you these cool coasters I've collected for the boat. They're vintage Dutch Royal Blue Delft ceramic tile coasters from the Holland America cruise line…Dutch and boaty (like me!)
