One month in the San Juan Islands living on my boat.. that is the plan. I am so blessed to have such awesome friends that are fun and supportive.
The last two days were spent getting the boat ready to go. The engine got a full test from belts to fluids. The fuel filters were changed. In addition, I had work done fixing up the helm on the fly bridge.
I purchased a navigation program and GPS for my laptop and the radar was fixed...
This night before I leave we are staying in Shilshole Marina. The sunset was spectacular.
I have been nervous and excited. I just wanted to have a month in the summer... the whole month of August and get away from the city. I won't drive, go to big festivals or events, teach live classes, mow grass, or even get mail. I wanted to see what it would be like. I have spend hundreds of days at the ocean.. but this will be fun to be on the boat in the islands. I think I have my entire summer wardrobe, three computers, a dozen books, craft projects, and projects to complete here on the boat.
