We 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.
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. Trying out the new free-dive suit that will also come in handy if we get anything wrapped around the prop.It’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.
