Capt. Jim and the Blonde are Out of Town - 9/26/2012

Capt. Jim and the Blonde are out of town.  Yes, out of Friday Harbor, where they have lived all Summer while working with Safari Whale Watching.  They are now in Anacortes, having brought Wild Blue, the C-Dory, and Big Red, the boat hauler, across on a Washington State Ferry, to prepare for the road trip back to Port Isabel TX.

Wild Blue

We invite them over for Happy Hour at 5P; however, they are a bit late.  We see why ....

Meeting Sam

They are approached by a young man who asks if they are Jim and Joan from the C-Brats (forum).  They are surprised, but then delighted as they learn he is Sam ....
As we were walking to the boat, a young man passed us, said, "Hello," and then asked, "Are you Jim and Joan from the C-Brats?"  We got the opportunity to meet Sam - I have been following Sam's travels as he took his C-Dory 22 from the Puget Sound area up to Alaska.  Sometimes with others onboard, often on his own.  He had just graduated from college and planned this adventure.  I have a lot of admiration for that young man; it was a treat to get to meet him face-to-face (we had corresponded through the forum).
(copied from "Capt. Jim" of  today's date.)

We are glad they had a chance to meet Sam.

Tonight we sit inside Willie's Tug, as the temperature is a bit cool for the ladies, and hear all about Jim and Joan's day.

Then dinner at our favorite pizza restaurant, Village Pizza.  It is a fun evening!
