Street Legal -- Thursday, January 26, 2017

When Herb tells me back in January that he had booked our flights to Seattle for the Boat Show, I notice our return trip is about two weeks later.  Why? I ask. How many days does it take to look at a boat?  How many boats do we need to look at?

The reply is that we will do other things, go other places, as well.  Makes sense. So with our PNW Jeep in Anacortes, Bruce drives us there to register "W Jane," as she is known, in the state of Washington, County of Skagit.  

Herb is ready with screw driver to switch out the plates.   Off with the old Texas tags, on with the new Washington.  W Jane is now 'street legal,' no longer just parked in Cap Sante's parking lot.   Bruce gets a photo of the changing of the license plates.

With afternoon Seattle traffic in mind, we skip The Brown Lantern restaurant, Village Pizza, and the Bowling Alley -- yes, a favorite place to eat in Anacortes -- and head south, looking for a fast food restaurant to get a quick bite on the way home.

Five Guys restaurant in Burlington WA provides us with burgers and fries!  So delicious, and such a generous service of fries, that I ask for a go-box.

Our last stop is Trader Joe's for meals easily prepared on a boat with minimal time spent.  Great idea, Bruce.  Oh, and a bottle or two of wine.

Willie's Tug is now home for a few days in a slip at the Selene Yachts docks in Lake Union, a do-able walk to the Boats Afloat part of the Seattle Boat Show.

Willie of Willie's Tug,
