The Best Things in Life are Free -- 9/3/2014

Today's the day to cruise to Roche Harbor for the free moorage day before the Ranger Rendezvous begins on Thursday.  We get a nice shot of MoonShadow as Bruce and Vicki leave Cap Sante.

With the rain gone, we expect a wonderful WX day and see that many sailboats do, also. There are more sailing vessels out today -- actually sailing -- than I have seen recently.  I love to see their sails up.

My heart warms with memories as we pass Blind Island at the entrance to Blind Bay and talk about returning there another time. Most of the boats have left for their daily cruises.

Blind Island

Serenity is interrupted as we see a small fast boat coming really fast.  She is throwing quite a wake and we get the effects of it as we pass her on our port.  Willie's Tug just keeps cruising along.

Herb sees some small unattended boats tied to a ramp up ahead and slows to minimize the wake we would give.

Watching for our turn to Roche Harbor on the port side, we also watch a large vessel approaching from the starboard -- the beautiful Victoria Clipper.  She will go astern of us and Bruce slows MoonShadow to allow her plenty of room to cross his bow.

After getting our slip assignment at Roche Harbor, we spend the rest of the day relaxing, visiting friends and meeting new ones.  

Life is good!
