Having gone shopping, taken a shower and seen my family I and Momma Kitty departed Edmonds for Blakely Harbor.
The sailing was wonderful with the wind slowly lightening from 10-15kts to about 5kts and generally from the southwest-ish so there was some tacking. As usual the seas around Edmonds were choppy with the interaction of current, wind and the shoreline. Sweet Pea was well powered up and charged well even though most of the day was against a 1-2 knot ebbing tide.
By early afternoon the clouds had mostly burned off providing a nicely warm afternoon.
I sailed into Blakely, a harbor on the southeastern corner of Bainbridge Island and not to be confused with Blake Island. The wind was light and I set the anchor under sail.
In total traveled just over 22 nautical miles is seven hours (most of it sailed, as noted above, against a 1-2 knot counter current) and only used the motor leaving Edmonds Marina. Perfect!
I enjoyed a late afternoon coffee, updated the logbook, and then made dinner while watching the sunset. A perfect end to a wonderful day of sailing.
