Doe Bay to Deer Harbor

West Around Orcas

    We woke and I carefully mapped out the coarse, we weighed anchor and set sail. I had my precious cargo back to the ferry dock, put a call in to my folks and sailed off. 20000709_14.jpg (79503 bytes)I headed west towards Jones island where I was going to anchor in the south bay. But I heard the weather forecast call for 20 mile per hour winds from the south southwest, so I decided to head back to Orcas where I am anchored in Deer Harbor. I finished up some rope work and wiring as I bobbed behind the protection of these rock faces. I disassembled my temporary wiring to the autopilot and installed an outdoor plug wired directly to my deep cycle battery. Now I can remove the unit by simply unplugging it.

Tomorrow I will sail north around the west side of Orcas Island to Sucia Island. My last stop in the United States. I will meet friends who are kayaking there for three days.

It's a small world after all. It's a small small world.
