Final slog…homecoming!

6 Aug

Today was a lighter day, with our final six hours of upriver sailing. The sun was bright, the breeze was pushing us along, and everything looked so familiar. This area is where we cut our sailing teeth as newlyweds many years ago with our Cal 34.

As we approached Portland, we met a sailor delivering a boat (Goose) up to Idaho who was being filmed by the History channel. Andy gave his permission to be interviewed by VHF while the camera crew filmed from Goose. How cool!

Coming into the downtown area we had family and friends onshore near a popular restaurant cheering us on. Very awesome and better than we had ever imagined!  We pulled into dock at our new home marina around 7 and had a stream of family and friends welcoming us back to the NW and checking out Tango. It was quite a homecoming and we are thrilled to close this chapter!
