Sister Ships -- 9/13/2014

Why hurry?

We have only one more intermediate stay before returning to 'home' in Seattle, Elliott Bay Marina, so why not enjoy Pleasant Harbor for another day?  All agree.

It is another day to relax, do a few chores, and visit the pool and hot tub.  Herb and Jake walk to the State Park and report seeing one boat, Avalon, at the dock.  Bruce and Vicki dinghy over later and take a photo of it.

(On edit, I add Bruce's photo below.)

At Happy Hour on MoonShadow Bruce sees a photo op and grabs my camera. Herb with a seagull on his shoulder!

Suddenly we hear a voice call out, "Paparazzi here!"  She is Sally from R-25 Puffin with her camera, who drives her dinghy over from D Dock for a visit.

What a delight!


Sally's Camera

Here is what her camera captures and she shares with us, calling us the Ranger Foursome.  I like that.  We also refer to ourselves as Sister Ships because our 31's were built about the same time, are the new Ranger Gray color, have similar bimini tops, similar upholstery colors and other amenities.  

One difference is the sun screens seamstress Vicki made for MoonShadow's cockpit. Maybe Willie's Tug will be similar by next year....

Vicki serves a tasty dinner with all food groups represented, and someone remarks, "Ain't life grand!"

    1. Thanks, Cindy. You and Sally should look each other up when you get back from your trip.

    Meeting the Ranger Foursome on Sister Ships was the high point of our stay at Pleasant Harbor!

    1. It was awesome, Sally, and I am glad to know your Maisie's name.
