Fogust has arrived

30 Jul

This week we do the weather dance, trying to pick a favorable window for the Strait, the coast, and the bar. Very early Wednesday was looking promising for a while until the fog rolled in. August on the coast here is often referred to as Fogust…cute. On its own, fog is not a show stopper as we have AIS and radar, but with gusty (even gale) winds on the Strait on Tuesday night, we decided to wait. No need to bash around blind in shipping lanes!
We have also become childless, as the girls decided to go camping in Bend with family for a long weekend instead of sailing with us. Deserters…
