Day 27 - Anacortes WA - Sunday, June 5, 2011

                                                                             Plan ahea

Our plan today is to rise at first light and prepare to begin our cruise back to Anacortes before the wicked winds come.  The tide times tell us we have a window of opportunity to get through the Mud Flats in the Swinomish Channel if we leave early.

We did.

It is nice to see the light atop Anthony's Restaurant as we look sleepily through the foggy window of Willie's Tug.

Soon we are on our way and marvel at the size of the Naval aircraft carriers along the channel.  

We have an uneventful trip, gratefully, and enjoy some glimpses of Mt. Baker along the way.

Not that we didn't work..............Swinomish Channel has a narrow channel and we mean to be in it.  As we enter the channel, we start to line up the Range Markers.

 We have a safe trip back, and are delighted to meet June and Tym of Circle T, who are here from the L. A. area.  They share valuable information about Happy Hour at the Majestic Hotel in Anacortes, where the dinner menu is awesome.  We agree to meet there later for dinner.  

The food was as excellent as they claimed and we very much enjoyed the visit with them, as well.  Hopefully, our paths will cross many times this summer.

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