Seattle and Vancouver Island
Flew from Ft. Lauderdale to Seattle and grabbed a taxi on my way to meet my new boat.
And here's my new boat docked in Seattle. Home sweet home.
The view out of the skylounge windows of the docks and city in the distance.
Across the water was Gasworks Park.
Took a quick evening stroll across the drawbridge. Still getting used to the idea that the sun doesn't set until nearly nine at night.
Over to the Google and Adobe headquarters area.
I wish we had more time in Seattle, I'd eat my way through the city. This sushi restaurant where the food passes by on a conveyor belt made my day. (Thanks to my iPhone for the photo.) The dessert shop down the way was equally yummy.
Got front row seats at a Mariner's game courtesy my new boss. Yay for baseball, hot dogs and beer.
And then we left Seattle and headed for the San Juan islands.
Dropped anchor in a little cove in Friday Harbor for the night.
And spent another night anchored in ... forgot the name, I'll have to ask...
And eventually ended up in Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. This view, through the window of the pantry is pretty much the only crew view of the starboard side of the boat. Most of my pictures have a similar frame of window and boat. Victoria was awesome, but more on that later.
