Watmough Bay to Rosario Resort

Yesterday at Watmough Bay Kevin and I took the dinghy into shore and did a little hike to stretch our legs.

Kevin grilled some delicious tenderloins for dinner, and I made a side of zucchini and cous cous and a spinach salad. It was mostly calm in Watmough last night except for the occasional mild ship wake coming into the bay. 

This morning we got up and I made us some little black forest ham, egg, spinach, and gruyere frittata cups, with a side of berries:


After breakfast we cruised over to Rosario Resort on Orcas Island for our last night with Kevin's mom. We thought a little spa time would be a nice way to end a few days cruising around the islands with us.

The day morphed from gray drizzle and fog to sunny blue sky gorgeousness:


We got our slip at the Rosario marina and then walked up to the mansion to explore a bit. After that, we spent some quality time in the hot tub and the indoor saltwater pool.



We really lucked out with the weather this week!


We returned to Airship and had a little snack on the top deck and almost fell asleep in the sun. GORGEOUS OUT TODAY I tell ya!

We worked all day in between all of this, and then worked some more this evening. Kevin and I also installed a dimmer for the LED lights in the stateroom, but we had a little roadblock during the install of the dimmer on the salon/galley lights so we'll save that for another day. 

Dinner tonight will be barbecued brisket and pulled pork (some of it made into tacos) with a side salad and a couple slices of zucchini. Tomorrow: back to Anacortes. Saturday we have a few last minute things to do/get before Alaska, and then at 5pm we meet up with our flotilla buddies for a happy hour potluck. And then, bright and early Sunday morning we take off for Southeast Alaska. I think we're ready!

Here's today's track: Watmough Bay to Rosario Resort, Orcas Island: 14.48 nautical miles

    I get it now, a Monk trawler named Thelonius. The shoes of the fisherman are some jiveass slippers!
