Home again

Yesterday we came the full 61 miles from Friday Harbor back to Shilshole - 11 hours.  It was a long trip, and we celebrated its successful conclusion with the traditional beer when the docklines were secure.

And this morning we woke up in - how do I put it? - "dock configuration".   After two weeks spent at anchor, we were tied to a dock and had AC power.  It felt simultaneously weird, and yet (sadly) normal.  Today I don't have to worry about whether or not to run the generator to recharge the reefer holding plates, nor will I be thinking about battery charge state.  I am not concerned about the placement of other boats at anchor around us.  And the transition seems to have been instantaneous.  Or maybe it happened while we were asleep.

And here we are.  Tomorrow I put on "regular" clothes and go to work.

It's these times when I wish that I wasn't so darn adaptable.  I wish I could keep that vacation state of mind just a little longer...

I've really enjoyed following your blog during your trip. Due to a new job, we have to shorten our trip to 6 days and we leave next Tuesday. By keeping up with your posts, I can start living the dream a bit early!
