Back from Vacation...

Thursday, July 24, 2014

I'm back from 3 weeks sailing around Washington State's San Juan Islands. Our sailboat is 26 feet long, and has no room for my scale or many steps while onboard. I consider it a victory that I only gained 1 pound over that 3 week period. Of course, I started with some up pounds, so I have my work cut out for me again.

Here are a few glimpses of what we enjoyed:

Our sailboat, Pilgrim.

A cove found on a hike

Inside a hollow tree in Matia Island's old growth forest

Sunset off Ewing Point on Sucia Island

Prevost Harbor off Stuart Island

After sunset on a calm night

A rocky beach on James Island

Lovely Mt. Baker

It's good to be home!!

    Amazing pictures!
Sounds like you had a wonderful time in a beautiful part of the country.
One pound is very reasonable, methinks.

    Those pictures are beautiful. What a lovely way to see all of the islands. You did very well only gaining a pound on your trip. Way to go my friend. Now that you are home, you can easily work off any pounds that you want. I love sunsets on the water!

    Love the pics, they are GORGEOUS. WTG on only gaining 1 pound! That's really an accomplishment.

My cousin and his wife have lived on their sailboat for 4 years now. They sail up and down the east coast between Boston and the Bahamas. What a life, right??

    I was thinking about you today and wondering. I didn't realize you were on vacation, but I did realize you have been absent. That vacation just looks wonderful. The scenery is gorgeous. And you look great, too. You'll get those couple pounds. You know what to do and have proven you can do it!! -Marsha
