Where Are You?

It seems like that's the first question everyone asks us these days!

We got a call from our shrimping friends, Mark and Lauresa, last night.  They were in Friday Harbor, and wondering where we were.

Now, they aren't the only ones.  Even the kids, when I ask them if they've seen the blog lately, say "Well, when you post on facebook, I might look at it, but it's been a while."  I had anticipated the blog would be a fun way the kids and grandkids could keep up with what we are doing.  Eight-year-old Troy is old enough to  read, and I thought it would be fun for them to pull up maps and follow along.  Oh well.

So let me do it....

OK.  We started this morning at Tolmie State Park.  It is on the left.  See those two little 'boat' symbols?  Those are mooring buoys, and we were on the lower one.  We ran the Nisqually Reach, which stretches between Olympia and Tacoma, Washington.  We went around Ketron Island through Cormorant Passage, and back around to Oro Bay on Anderson Island.  We are in the western portion, with a good view of Mt. Ranier.

And THAT is where we are.

Here are some pictures from today:

A 'gang' of seals'.  There were lots of seagulls hanging around for crumbs too.  I don't know how they managed to not get in the photo!

We saw several eagles off Ketron Island, but this one was sitting still, posing I guess.

Our 'view off the bow' tonight!
