The dependable old girl (the boat, not Marcia!) took us safely from Long Beach to Oxnard, from Oxnard to Anacortes (Washington), from Anacortes to the wilds of British Columbia, then back to Anacortes. The total trip distance was well over 2000 miles! And she is still floating, keeping us warm, and keeping our beer cold! Anacortes is a beautiful town and we have decided to leave the boat here for the winter and will be putting her on dry land until next spring. She is scheduled to come out of the water 9/25. A few days after that, we will be jumping in the other ole girl (the car, not Marcia) and heading to our other home in Santa Maria.
Like most towns, Anacortes has a Saturday farmers market... and of course most farmers markets have a pastry booth... the ole girl (Marcia, not the boat or the car) couldnt let them thar pastries escape! Of course, I have to admit that I had to help her not let some escape too!
