Anacortes, WA

The boat was left in Cap Sante Marina in Anancortes while I was off to Alaska. When I returned Queenie was anxious to get out of the "fishbowl". We went a couple miles to Saddle Bag Islands. Very nice and we had the anchorage to ourselves and a colony of 20 harbor seals. The island is so close to Anancortes that when people get here to take off, they are so anxious to get to the San Juan Islands they blow by this beautiful spot.

Spent a day there with plans to return then anchored out in front of the marinas in Anacortes.
 Anchored at Saddle Bag Is. I never tire of the view of Mt. Baker.
 Different state of the tide. We anchored in 28 feet on the south side of the island.
 Back in front of Anancortes in eight feet of water we watched the beer can races on Wednesday evening.

The only multi hull in the Races and the light of the setting sun forced me to take this picture. An end to a great day.
