We got up this morning and left Port Townsend by about 8:30am (and not at the "crack of dawn" as we'd planned).
The wind was from the south and had been blowing pretty good all night, but by morning it had subsided quite a bit. We never saw the 2-4 foot wind waves as forecast, or any rain at all. The day turned out to be quite beautiful and our 4ish hour cruise from Port Townsend up to Rosario Resort on Orcas Island was gorgeous.

And here's our route from today:
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
