We’re sailing away out on Port Townsend Bay

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Here we are anchored out in the bay, sailing ashore every day  in our dinghy Grace Darling to get the last few bits done on the boat. Adding a towed generator (we call it Mr. Toad), organizing the jacklines, stowing and all those other last-minute details. Planning to head for Neah Bay by the 15th of September. Had a blast at the Wooden Boat Show here, and got lots done on the boat, as well. There was lots of great music, with Tom Lewis and David Lovine, the Cutters and others. Steve Lewis (no relation to Tom), organized some shanty circles and we enjoyed hearing some new ones.

No time for more details now, but we will write a longer story once we get to Cal.

September 2, 2008 - heading out

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Forbes & Cameron will depart Cadboro Bay on Thurdsay, September 4th. She will spend a few days there tweaking the autopilot and attending the Wooden Boat Festival. Looking forward to a last session with Lewis and Lovine and all those great PT folks. Heading south the following week.

We will not be available by phone after Wednesday. Please don’t leave a message, unless you are nearby and wanting to connect with us. Our cell minutes in the USA are extremely limited.

We will check e-mail when we can, and will update this blog when we can. Feel free to e-mail us or add comments to the blog.

Stay tuned for the next episode, and a more detailed update.

Here’s a photo of Tom Lewis, Lynn Lewis, and Pat, singing on board in Nanaimo Harbour in July. Tony and Sue and Tom were running the boat while we relaxed.
