We had a really fun conversation at our April Zoom meeting. Scott Tobiason led us through a presentation of our reciprocal moorage yacht clubs as catalogued on yachtdestination.org. We felt like we were out cruising already looking at the satellite imagery and talking about the attractions of the clubs.
This month we will talk about places we have each discovered around the Sound that are easy to get to in a day or a weekend – places we might not take a fleet of CYC cruisers to on a cruise. A few people have discovered the park at the head of Blakely Harbor, and the directions to walk to Fort Warden. I hear there are other places within walking distance from the harbor as well. Jennifer and I discovered a beach access at Manzanita that led to a park with an amazing number of trilliums blooming in April. Has anyone been to the Ajax Café since it reopened? Do you need a reservation? Do you need a dinghy? How many crepe shops are in Puget Sound? J’aime Les Crepes! Is there anywhere, any space to anchor in Port Madison these days? Hope to hear about fun little places you may have found. Of course we look forward to hearing how everyone has been coping with Coronavirus Isolation. Have you been getting cabin fever? Ordering groceries in? Have you visited your boat for essential maintenance? Have you gone out for an isolating day sail or overnight? What was it like? Have you been working on a small or big boat project? Are you dreaming of your next cruise or your next boat!
Until we meet up on Zoom, stay safe and stay healthy!
