Home Sweet Home

There's nothing like a good night's sleep on a boat. Jesse and I slept for 10+ hours Monday night, and woke up feeling like a million bucks. We had another skillet-style breakfast, and weighed anchor...

Monday was another beautiful day, simply amazing for this time of year. Clear, 50 degrees, calm seas...but still no wind. Oh well. We purposely left the anchor alarm on just to make sure it worked- it does. We had a quiet trip to Everett. It always gets that way at the end of a journey you don't want to end. We attempted to sail one last time before arriving in Everett- but the winds just weren't there. Next time! We arrived in Everett at 12:30 pm, and spent the rest of the day packing, cleaning, and setting up a space heater and a drier to keep the inside mold- and moisture-free over the next two months.

After leaving the marina, we headed out to the cabin for a free night's stay. After many beers and countless games of jenga, we turned in for the night. Yes, that's Beast Light in the photo. It is a Frank and Jesse tradition that is not likely to end anytime soon. The next day we did some sightseeing to Steven's Pass and then headed to Seattle for our return home. We had a great trip. Thanks, Jesse.

Typhoon is ready for her new family in Everett. And her new name, too.... :P
