1st Anchoring of the 2021 Season

Well it is finally February and the weather is getting a little better! Days are slowly getting longer by 1-2 minutes each day and the sun is starting to coming out. We lucked out with both Saturday and Sunday forecasted for sun/clouds/overcast and no RAIN! Taking advantage of this, we spent the weekend anchored in Gig Harbor, WA. This is our 1st anchor of 2021 so the Captain had to pump up the dinghy tubes and check the Evinrude. The harbor was mostly all ours, not many other boats choose to anchor.

The ability to dinghy ashore at a State Park allows us to get back to cruising and anchoring. We originally had plans to attend NAPS 2020, what has […]
