Day 17 - Anacortes WA - Thursday, May 26, 2011

Rain is predicted today, but about mid-morning we see the sun peeking through the clouds and it turns out to be a nice day for a boat ride.  

As we exit the marina, the first thing we see is a tug pulling a barge; in the photo, the lines are barely visible.   We give way until they are past.

A bit farther out, a crew boat overtakes us in a big hurry and creates quite a wake.  We had seen him coming and were prepared to minimize the wave action on us. 

It is fun again to read the charts and identify where we are as we cruise around Guemes Island.

Willie's Tug got a good exercise today.

Willie of Wilie's Tug,
   and Walldog, Willie and Jake
