The Island Spirit made it away safely. We decided to forego onboard coffee and get a full breakfast at the restaurant in town. Then we picked up a few items at the grocery store (more of that fabulous hamburger), and headed back to the boat.
Not far down, though it is not technically 'The Gorge' yet, the sunshine between the cliffs seems to beckon us home.
And as an end to this gorgeous day, we are at anchor in the northeast nook of Miller Island. We are doing something we haven't done in for quite sometime--we are sitting on the back deck with drinks and books. I think we will stay out here as long as there is light, OR until it cools enough to be uncomfortable. Goodnight!
