New Years

Tug and tow w/ Mount Baker in the background
After a few weeks of holiday travel involving planes and trains and automobiles, we finally got the chance to head out on the boat for a couple of days.  The original plan of a longer trip was revised after a look at the below-freezing temperatures forecast for the weekend.  We want to work the bugs out of our various systems in preparation for a few years in Alaska, but better to ease into this cold weather lifestyle.

The weekend turned out to be gorgeous in spite of the chilly temps.  Our revised plan had us making the relatively quick trip to Poulsbo in the company of our friends Jason and Christy on S/V Hello World.  Good company, good food, good wine, no better way to ring in the new year.  It was slightly disappointing that both the bakery and the used gear store were closed New Years Day, but the bars were open to make up for it, and we did sneak in a trip to the bakery the following morning before heading back to Seattle.

Here's wishing everyone a Happy 2011, and to all our boating friends, see you out on the water.
