I had to get up to many times last night. This morning I am tired. I slept in until 0817. When I awoke I could hear the guys up in the cockpit talking. I completed my journal entries for yesterday before I emerged from my cabin. When I finally got up it was 0906.
We had bacon, eggs and hash browns this morning prior to pulling out. Rod pulled up the anchor for the last time of this trip. The anchor chain was covered with mud. It took a while to wash all the mud off the chain. In fact Rod allowed some of the chain to go into the boat with mud on it. I had to go below and lower the chain enough so Rod could get all the mud off.
We motored for a while, until we got to Agate Pass. The wind was blowing south, so we rolled out the jib and sailed north.
After exiting Agate Pass the wind lightened up and we motored sailed out into Puget Sound and started sailing across toward Shilshole. Eventually the wind lightened up, and then we rolled in the sail and started the motor. We motored into Eagle Harbor, and tied up to the Tacoma Outstation. Our final stop before returning to Tacoma.
Tonight we has the last of the salmon we had caught in Canada, by Shearwater. Rod baked the salmon, and made a salad with some mash potatoes to go with the fish. After dinner we sat in the cockpit for a while talking before I headed back in my cabin for the evening.
I watch a few YouTube sailing channels before falling asleep for my last night of my Alaska 2018 adventure.
