Default Weekend in PNW

Didn't get to cruise like I had hoped since we are still working some bugs out, but did get a couple nice pictures.

Nice... I'll be in your area next week. Going to visit my daughter in Bellingham for a week.

Getting out of the Az heat will be a nice change of pace.

I love the irony. I spent the last weekend talking about nothing except how I want to get out of Washington and move to AZ lol.

Is Lake Pleasant any good for boating or do you stick to Powell? I'd really like to be in the peoria area... between Phx and Sedona is ideal to me lol. (Baseball and beauty).


Will you be boating while you're up in Bellingham? definitely the best month to be in Puget Sound!

I stick to Powell.... You will too once you have experienced it.

Pleasant is too small and full of drunks and punks for my liking. Too many people with more money than common sense.

Powell is only a 4 hour drive from the Phoenix area. Well worth the trip. We keep the cruiser in storage 8 miles from the ramp except for the Fall and Spring months, we put it in a slip and use it a lot more than in the summer when the heat and crowds are around.

Powell is definitely a bucket list cruise for me. When I had my C-Dory a lot of the C-Dory folks and Ranger Tug folks scheduled annual meetups and cruises on Powell and it looks like a blast!

Your files might need to be re-sized. None of them are posting.

The mooring buoy shots with Mt Rainier in the background is tied up near Gig Harbor, WA on my wife's aunt and uncles buoy.

Our San Juans trip in 2020 went like this:
Bellingham Marina (homeport at the time) to Port Townsend for late breakfast and fuel. about a 2.5hr cruise.

Then cruised the rest of the way up to Friday Harbor Marina where we had dinner reservations for my wife's birthday. we tinkered around on the island for the day. The next day we cruised over to the opposite side of the island to visit Roche Harbor. Very cool place with dozens of mega yachts, but probably not our scene. so we hung out for one night and walked down to an oyster farm for oysters and muscles to grill on the boat.

Next day we headed to West Beach on the north side of Orcas Island, no shore power hook up there so I basically turned off cabin electronics for the day. We crabbed and fished, and cooked the crab on the Magma.

After that we spent the next morning at Sucia island, hiked around and paddleboarded before moving down to Rosario Marina for another night.

From there, to Lopez Island the next day for one night, before coming home.


We made a lot of stops that week. This year, we have booked a very similar trip, I've already RSVP'd slips for 2nights at Rosario and 2 at Friday Harbor. We'll skip Roche this year, but are not yet decided on West Beach (which I LOVE) and Lopez (which my wife loved).
