Bainbridge Island, our favorite place in 2015

Bainbridge Island, specifically Winslow Wharf Marina, has become our favorite place to visit this last year.  Grace was brand new, so shaking out all of the bugs and getting used to things was a priority.  Winslow Wharf Marina is only about an hour by motor from our home marina, Elliott Bay Marina.

I think we visited here at least 5 times this season, if not even more!

This weekend was great weather-wise, and it was one of the first times that Josh was able to come along on a trip without tons of extra people, which was very important to me!

It was also a huge full moon, which we were able to see while sitting in the cockpit on the warm summer night.


One of our favorite things about Winslow is Doc’s Marina Grill, specifically their Chicken Fried Steak.  It has to be one of the top 3 that I’ve ever eaten!

The return trip was not as fun, as there was hardly any wind, so motoring was the primary method for movement.  We explored a bit of the Blakely Rocks and headed back home, a restful weekend had by all!

We bought a 50' 2003 Kristen Yachts steel pilot house trawler in late 2023. She is an amazing ship with tons of cool systems and a relaxing interior.
