Summer wrap Up 2 (July sail trips)

I was so fed up with our sailing experiences in July, I didn’t want to post at all. Thank goodness we had great sailing in August and September. Meanwhile, back to July-whenever we went out the weather was windy and often damp, if not rain, and quite chilly.

After being delayed with engine  troubles, we finally took off 2 days late, running out of time, we went to Blaine from Point Roberts. Not far, and we never stop in Blaine anymore comming back from the US. So we made the best  of our opportunity to look around and explore a few blocks of Blaine and the park next to the water.  I didn’t take many pictures but this shows the peace in the marina. Great dock by the way.

There are always birds. I took the picture of the Heron, thru one of the windows on the boat, and really cranked up the dial for a close up.

We did not fair much better the next time out and made it to Bellingham, it takes a few hours to get there by sailboat.   I had never been to Fairhaven, so this was my opportunity and the marina had a driver shuttle us there and back. Had a great time looking into stores, got some yarn and a lunch. Then back to the marina.

Big wide docks again and on shore  wonderful flower beds which I enjoyed.  I had a dead camera battery in Fairhaven, what a disappointment.  The weather was predicted to have a good rain for the next few days.  We opted for our own bed and the comforts of home as hubby wasn’t feeling that well.

The last time in July was Sushia Island.  A rough muddled  sea, getting there, I was sick  and we had  a tough time to get the mouring bouy  secured and we were there for the night. Grey, windy and everyone staying inside, Lots of waves. Morning it did not look better,  we went home.

On the way home on July 23.
