Shallow Bay, Sucia Island, San Juans

Limerick Monk 36 Shallow Bay Sucia IslandWe left Anacortes in the rain with the promise of more rain to come. Our destination being the West side of Sucia Island in a perfect little cove that we had stumbled upon the last time we were at Sucia Island a little over a month ago. The promised rain was left in our wake as we passed the south end of Lummi Island.Limerick Monk 36 underway

Weather are no weather we had to get out of Anacortes – we had been there for nearly a month getting the boat ready to head north. We topped the diesel off. At $1.78 per gallon we squeezed in as much fuel as we possibly could.

This perfect cove will be our anchorage until the perishables run out and we can enter Canada with a clean conscience that we will not be bringing in any contraband.Limerick Monk 36 Shallow Bay Sucia Island  Shallow Bay Sucia Island kayaking Trying out the new free-dive suit that will also come in handy if we get anything wrapped around the prop.Freediving aboard Limerick Monk 36It’s warm when the sun is out but the wind is still chilly so the enclosure acts like a greenhouse and keeps us out of the wind.Limerick Monk 36 enclosure flybridge Limerick Monk 36 snacks Shallow Bay Sucia Island kayaking
