Island Cruising

It's been almost a year since we moved to Orcas Island. It has been our biggest boating season to date. We have been able to go out in the boat almost every weekend since January.

On May 1st we moved on to our boat for the summer season. We love living on our boat. Too bad the weather here isn't warm year round because if it was it would be a perfect paradise!!

In October we move back into Mitch's Boss' house. We will still play on our boat during the weekends and check on it daily. Mitch will be at the marina everyday. He is in charge of the yacht that is moored there in the winter.

Here are a few of the places we sailed to this year and explored:
