Sunday August 8- up by 7, on to Anacortes. We are having the boat pulled out of the water to check on the area where the whale hit us. After calls to several marinas in the area, Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes was able to do the work starting Monday.
Anacortes is located on Fidalgo Island. It is halfway between Seattle and Vancouver BC. In a 90 minute self guided walk around town, one can see the historic buildings and houses. Ferry’s also run to and from the San Juan Islands from here.
We walked 6 miles after dinner around downtown Anacortes. When we were here in June, we explored what was to the left of the marina. Today we went right. Really cute touristy town. On several buildings throughout downtown, there are “cutouts”. Most were of historical people who first had a business in that building.
Craig is also departing Trance today. His daughter Alicia and her husband live in Portland, they are driving up, spending the night in Seattle together, then dropping him off at the airport.
