The captain decided on a whim to take Zodiac out for a little shake down sail in the bay.
What a fabulous day! Not a lot of wind, but clear skies and just enough breeze to set sails and tack a few times on a beam reach.
All the long months of rain, wind and cold are worth it when spring arrives and we appreciate it all that much more. this must be why we remain here in the PNW.
Here is a photo of Abby the ship's cat, surveying the quarterdeck upon our return to the dock. Apparently all must have seemed ship shape as she eventually left the helm satisfied for below decks.
If you are near Bellingham next weekend, (4/28 & 29), come down and tour the Zodiac as well as six or more other classic schooners and classic boats that will be docked next to her for the weekend of the Bellingham Bay Rendezvous. (And it's free)!
