Today begins are last full day on the water. We leave La Conner behind us and head for Chuckanut Bay, just south of Bellingham.
We wind our way through the Swinomish Channel, then under the bridge at the edge of the bay.
Here is a big sister to our Grey Goose.
When navigating the waters of the San Juan Islands, you must keep your eyes open for these monsters. They can’t maneuver as well as the little boats, so it is up to keep out of their way. Fortunately, this one was at anchor, so no danger.
We arrived at Chuckanut Bay, dropped our anchor and had a great evening taking in the sights around us.
There were a total of about 8 boats from our charter company that used this bay as their last anchorage. Here is one of them.
A Nordic Tug 32, Florian, shares the bay with us, their cabin lights on, enjoying the evening.
