Heading to Rosario Resort for Thanksgiving dinner. Moorage includes use of the spa (hot tub, indoor salt water pool, sauna) and there's a great restaurant/bar, and lots of interesting history. http://www.riveted-blog.com/2014/11/thanksgiving-on-orcas-island.html

This was one of those "should we even bother" going because the kids were cranky getting there. And then they were very good out on the water. Super fun to explore a new place! Saw a live seal, and a dead seal! (not together).

Return to Anacortes to leave Airship for planned upgrades: solar panels, inverter, additional house batteries, inverter, stove/oven, wifi hub. On the way, passed a pod of orcas on the West side of San Juan Island, just North of Lime Kiln Lighthouse. One whale came close enough that we had to shut down our engine and drift while they passed by. We first noticed the approaching whale when it set off the radar alarm a quarter mile away - we saw a blip appear, set off the alarm, then disappear. A few seconds later, a second blip appeared nearby and disappeared. Blog Post: http://www.riveted-blog.com/2014/10/whales-on-radar.html

We left our mooring buoy in Fossil Bay to find some more reliable internet to get some work done. Tied up at West Bay Resort on Orcas for a couple of hours and worked from the boat. Then, headed over to Prevost Harbor on Stuart Island for an afternoon hike. Finally, we went around to Roche Harbor for the night. Weather was beautiful.

We left Anacortes and cruised about 2.5 hours out to Sucia Island. Many porpoises and seals. We grabbed a mooring buoy in Fossil Bay ($12/night) and stayed two nights here. What a gorgeous place! We hiked in the morning and had another beautiful calm night moored in the bay.

Left Spencer Spit and headed back to Anacortes to meet with Herve at Nordic NW regarding our upgrades. Parts are ordered but not in yet, so we have more time to go out and use the boat!
