Our original plans to circumnavigate Bainbridge Island clockwise did not work, given the circumstances. When plans and circumstances collide, the prudent mariner revises the plan. And so we did.
The wind forecast had a South wind yesterday, North wind this afternoon, and a South wind again tomorrow and Monday. So we sailed to Port Madison yesterday in a beam to broad reach, and today we sailed South to Eagle Harbor under another broad reach. When your plans match the wind, the going is easy and relaxing indeed, today being the perfect example.
Now we are peacefully at anchor out in front of the Harbor House, and I am about to go grill a steak. In the sun.
Does it get any better than this?
Well, yes. Kaci and Adam will join us tomorrow afternoon. And the temperature is forecast to reach as high as (hold your breath) normal! Yes it is possible we will reach 68°!
That will be better.
