Day 62 - Anacortes WA - Sunday, July 10, 2011

A walk with Jake up the hill this morning takes us by a paddle wheel houseboat.  What a delight to see!

We wonder if she lives here or is cruising in the islands.

As we pass by the fountains along the walking path, we notice soap suds foaming in the pools.  

Hmmm, someone played a prank last night.  

We have an uneventful trip back to Anacortes.  Leaving Friday Harbor, we go through the San Juan Channel, Upright Channel, Lopez Sound, Thatcher Pass, Rosario Strait, Guemes Channel, and into Fidalgo Bay.  

We anticipate heavy Sunday afternoon marine traffic, but are happy to see it is not the case today.

The tug Garth Foss is anchored just outside Cap Sante Marina.

Then we see coming our way two Tall Ships, Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain.  

Lady Washington

Hawaiian Chieftain

I am amazed to see members of the crew climbing on the mast of the Hawaiian Chieftain.  I'm sure they have done this many times and are not afraid.  What a view they must have!

They seem to be holding on with both hands, or perhaps they are working with the sails.

But the people on deck are not too concerned;  some are looking up amazed, and some are laughing and waving to us.

All seem to be having a good time.
