When we left Seattle we were wondering if we might have headed north too early this trip. Our first real travel day from the Seattle area, to Port Ludlow, we had a brief snowstorm and I was again wondering at our timing. Since then the weather has actually been OK, and we ended up checking our old ship's log to see if the weather really was better than our trip two years ago or if we are just better at accepting what comes our way. Turns out the weather has been about the same, with temperatures in the 30's and low 40's at night.
Yesterday we spent a pretty miserable day of heavy rain mixed with sleet, thankfully sitting at anchor in a well protected lagoon. The bright side to this is that as we headed out the next day, the clouds cleared off enough for us to get a glimpse of all the new snow on the mountains around us, a truly stunning sight.
