Elliott Bay -- 9/15/2014

Bruce takes MoonShadow out of the Port of Kingston harbor at 9:20A on flat calm waters, leaving Apple Cove soon to enter Puget Sound to travel to our destination of his home port, Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle.

Staying to the west of the shipping lanes, we cruise on swells from wakes, with seas one foot or less north of Port Madison.  Skippers increase speed to 12 knots to cross the traffic lanes at the point where we can go straight across and minimize the time in the lanes.  Now we are pointed straight toward Elliott Bay.

My heart sings as I see what may be the entrance to the Locks and Ray's Boathouse Restaurant, then cruise by West Point to get a nice view of Seattle and its ships.

Soon Willie's Tug is safe and secure at the dock and transient neighbors with Kathy and Craig's Salish Rover.

I enjoy the brilliance and Autumn golden beauty of a tree by the marina office, as Herb goes in to register our stay.
