Day One Gig Harbor

Departed Olympia at high tide to the music of Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man” in memory of my Brother. Wind calm so motored taking 5 hours. Tied up at Arabella’s Landing for the night. Beautiful day on the South Puget Sound carefree and relaxed. Our Dana 24 Kestrel was all good. New Garmin chart plotter was a welcome addition to the navigator though paper charts also accessed. Toasted our safe arrival at the famous Tides Tavern for a cold draft beer. Picture of Ann under the Tacoma Narrows bridge with a mild ebb current of about 2 knots.
Our dog Ensign Wilson stood watch while we were on tavern liberty. Depart tomorrow for Poulsbo. Fair winds. Gary and Ann and Wilson.
