|The lighthouse and concrete path from the bay to the lighthouse!|
A leftover from WWII. It is the only concrete sidewalk
on any of the State Park islands.

while the green line represents sailing. The red dots are our destinations. Patos,
Deer Harbor on Orcas Island, and finally Eagle Harbor on Cyprus Island.

We returned to the boat in a good bit of rain. We had to shed our gunked up shoes off prior to loading in the dink.
Popcorn and cocktails and then dinner. We ate so much food on this trip and it must be boating but the Count ended down 1.6 lbs for the week in spite of eating and eating and eating!
That night we watched the fire on Guemas Island fully engulf most of an 11,000 sq. ft home with apparently 100s of people trying to get the fire under control. A very spectacular fire. It was good the rain was coming down hard!

their own photo at the rendezvous?
