An exclusive secret society

Sitting around and talking with others on the dock, I am, once in a very great while, able to step outside life and listen to the conversations flowing around me... How to transit  Deception Pass.  Where to anchor in Friday Harbor.  Threading the needle into Fisherman's Bay on Lopez Island.  Crossing the shelf at Port Ludlow in the fog.

These are actual subjects discussed in very recent conversations here on the dock.  I feel privileged and blessed to have been granted the experience to be a part of these conversations.  It's an exclusive society with very few members compared to the population at large.  In fact, it is largely unknown to the population at large... it is a secret society of the seaworthy, and I feel privileged to be a member.
