Well, we go after we walk Jake and get the boat ready -- one hour later. There is a light chop with wind at 10 to 12 knots. We have following seas in Saratoga Passage. I think I see fog ahead, but as we enter Skagit Bay, it thins and we encounter rips and more chop.
We turn into Swinomish Channel and I stand at the cockpit door to watch the range markers behind us line up. I call to Herb either "to port" or "to starboard" to direct him in correcting to stay in the channel. Perfect!
A fast fishing boat passes, temporarily blocking my view of the markers, but we have a depth finder to check.
Several minutes of this, which seems like an eternity, and we are in deeper water. Beautiful homes along the way.
