A tale of two sails

This last week I took Grace out on the water twice after a ton of winter projects. The first time was a beautiful, warm day with wind and real sailing. The second time was the rainiest April day on record in 22 years in Seattle, and turned out quite a bit different.

Be prepared wherever you are

This is a story of how technology and being prepared helped us survive a very serious situation. It also reinforces how important preparedness is everywhere – at home, on vacations, in the wilderness, and on the water.

Jarrell Cove

The fifth day of our South Puget Sound trip saw us leaving Olympia and heading to one of my favorite places – Jarrell Cove. It is a fantastic state park and cove with a ton of mooring options, and a nearby marina.

Tacoma and Eagle Island

Our South Sound sailing trip was just getting started, with stops in Tacoma and at Eagle Island. Tacoma and the Gig Harbor area is where I grew up, so it felt very familiar. Eagle Island is a place I will always visit whenever in the South Sound.

South Puget Sound Trip

Today we begin a week long trip from Seattle headed into South Puget Sound. The trip will have us visiting Tacoma, Oro Bay, Eagle Island, Olympia, Joemma Beach, and Hope Island, plus a bunch of other stops along the way.
