Finally, we get a weekend out on the boat as a family. With a road trip to Vancouver BC one weekend, several weekend birthday parties for the kids to attend,weekend Cub Scout activities for Kevin, and then end of soccer season for Kevin, not to mention my guy's boat trip last weekend, we just haven't had any free weekends, until now that is.
|Motoring toward Deception Pass at about 6:45AM.|
|Pretty sunrise. Deception Pass behind us. Smooth waters ahead.|
After breakfast we put on some warm clothes and row to shore so we can go for a hike. It's still below 40 outside, so warm clothes are a necessity.
|Adagio swinging gently on a buoy. Cindy and Steve. Mt Baker behind.|
|We found this strange hand-carved wooden boat-like creation during our|
|Beautiful Mt. Baker, where we will be skiing this winter.|
|A beach full of great skipping rocks. Nice find!|
|The remains of an old cabin, deep in the woods.|
|The kids discover that Duck Lake is frozen solid. Even some large rocks|
tossed high in the air by Dad could not break through. It has been cold
here this week....
Saturday night we start to decorate the inside of our boat for Christmas. We hope to get out for some Christmas Cruising this year. The kids cut snowflakes out of paper and made red and green paper chains. We also hung some Christmas lights around the Salon.
|It's starting to feel like Christmas. Kitty Zappy ignores the fun by napping|
on a chair.
|Radar mast is back up. The boat is looking good. Some new antennas,|
some new paint, new electronics on the mast, new navigation lights
and spot lights too. Oh, we have a new swimstep this year too.
