After a nap and then an enjoyable afternoon and some overnight star gazing at Oro Bay, Anderson Island, I start the day much later than yesterday’s early wakeup.
My Oro Bay anchoring spot is sheltered by trees and the sun doesn’t reach the solar panel until after I depart. As I consider future anchorages, especially when the days get shorter come fall, will need to make sure I have good sun expose to assure the battery stays charged.
After breakfast I find light wind sailing and after loosing to the current in Nisqually Reach I ultimately motor to Zittle’s at Johnson Point to get gas, water and dump the trash & porta potti. I like Zittle’s as they were very helpful back when Sweet Pea’s trailer broke.
I motor just a few minutes away from Zittle’s dock and up go the sails for a nice wing-on-wind sail to McMicken Island State Park where I sail to one of the buoys.
The day is very warm – almost 80 in May! What will August be like?!
