Frozen Weather...

Ginny and headed up to the boat on Friday to tackle the shower drain pump. What we found was one frozen marina, the docks were covered with ice crusted snow. We fired up the forced air heater and hunkered down below for the night. On Saturday the temperature was 25 degrees and the wind was blowing 15 - 20 knots... which made the thought of opening the companionway and engine compartment not very appealing.

Ginny and I cut our losses and headed home. Instead of our normal route we decided to head south through Whidbey Island, this way we'd cross Deception Pass, the Tacoma Narrows and take the ferry to Port Townsend.

We arrived at the ferry terminal just in time to watch one leave. Not wanting to spend the time idle, we back tracked to Fort Casey Historical State Park. It was cool. At the turn of the century (1890 - 1950) Fort Casey was one of three defensive sites defending access to the Puget Sound from the Pacific Ocean.
