I was a slow start of the year for us cruising the local area. We had a trip to Hawaii in January that used up a couple of weekends and rooting on the Seahawks blocked out some others. We kept checking the weather and President's Weekend looked very nice for being on the water. Linda got away from the office a couple of hours early and we headed towards the South Sound, Anderson Island and our Oro Bay outstation. The currents were against us and there was very little wind so the sail covers didn't come off. We were tied up to the outside dock about a 1/2 before sunset. I went up to the storage shed and unlocked the power cabinet and turned the power on for the docks. We had stopped at the Antique Sandwich Shoppe on our way to Helios, so that dinner was taken care of. It was a quiet evening with only the Martineks on there boat at the outstation. We had a lazy Saturday morning with a lot of reading going on, as I had a stack of boating magazines and Linda her kindle. We helped Jim and Janet untie, as they were headed home and then driving to Bremerton for the Heavy Weather get together. Shortly after the Martineks left, Gregg and Kelly Warter came in followed by the Sibbers. Linda and I took a walk to stretch our legs. We decided to use the Club's bar-b-que rather cook inside, and it worked very well both Saturday and Sunday evenings. We could see that the local seal and sea lion population has found the center dock a nice resting space. Jim had gotten out his bucket and washed away most of the crap on the docks. We were the last ones to leave on Monday and turned off the power and locked everything up. We decided to motor over between Ketron and the mainland for a change of pace on our way home. There was less than 5 knots of wind and what little there was, was coming in on our nose from the north. We were tied up at Breakwater and on our way home by 4:30.
