We bought Island Song in Seattle, following are photos of our hundred mile trip up Puget Sound and thru the San Juan Islands:

FlybridgeIsland Song’s upper helm, or flybridge. We had beautiful weather, sunny and mostly calm, so I spent the trip up here. Jeff spends time in the engine room, monitoring the engine and replacing a bilge pump.
Mt BakerAfter heading north 46 nautical miles via Rosario Strait, we anchor in Echo Bay, Sucia Island. Our second night. This is our view of Mt Baker.

Mt BakerAfter motoring up Admiralty Inlet, across Oak Bay and Port Townsend, we spot Mount Baker in the distance.
Island SongIsland Song tied to a mooring buoy, Fort Flagler.
Victoria ClipperThe next day we head north towards the San Juan Islands and are passed by the Victoria Clipper IV. (Fast catamaran ferry that runs daily between Victoria and Seattle.)
chartWe are here – in the eastern end of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, with Whidbey Island to starboard. No chartplotter (yet) so I am navigating with paper charts … old school! It was fun.
Echo BayThe next morning it’s calm – a large fog bank rolls in and chases us out of Echo Bay. We scoot around the SE side of Alden Bank and motor north to our home port of Blaine. Island Song did well!
