What a day! Last minute chores at the house took most of the morning so we didn’t leave Seattle until around 11:30 for the drive up to Anacortes. Once at the boat, there were still things that needed to be done, like provisioning the perishable food, cleaning the cockpit, securing the jerry cans and general cleaning. Mom and dad spent most of the afternoon just hanging out in the brilliant sunshine while Richard and I finished the last minute chores.

Once the chores were done, well, most of them, the four of us went out for dinner. Mom and dad treated and we had a great last meal with them at Rockfish Café. Picked up some ice for the fridge and mom and dad left with the car to go back to Seattle and Richard and I went back to the boat to get ready for the big departure tomorrow morning.

We stopped by to see Julia and Charles as they had volunteered to dinghy out with us in the morning and get pictures of Osprey as she slipped out of Cap Sante Marina. We chatted and then headed back to our boat knowing that in less than 12 hours we would be heading for Hawaii. Crazy!
