Friday Harbor

Monday, July 6. Day 2.
The wind blew all night long out of the SW. I got up and walked Hank up the dock and then got ready to go. We pulled out of Kingston Cove Marina at 0528. Appletree Cove was rough with a 2-3' SW chop. We turned up the sound and started riding the strong ebb. We rounded Pt. No. Pt. then right up Admiralty Inlet. At times we were making 10 kts or more and enjoyed a following sea. We came by Marrowstone Point and set a course for Partridge Point on Whidbey Island. At Point Wilson the seas were very rough, but we made great speed hitting 12 kts at times. After Point Partridge I adjusted the course to go W of Smith Island. It was quite choppy with waves from the S/SW. We made Cattle Pass, the gateway to the San Juan Archipelago at 1130. We then went up San Juan Channel and right into Friday Harbor at just before 1300. We're tied up at slip G25. The marina is not too crowded as there are plenty of empty slips.

We went up to the Front Street Ale House and had dinner. We saw our good friend Mary Delong there. She was there to help her parents.

Nm: 53 nm. Avg. speed: 7.3 kts. Time: 7:16 Hours: 8.0 Ending hours: 5857.2
