“Come watch me disconnect us from Seattle.” That was Kevin’s cheesy line this morning as he removed the 50 amp power cord and coiled it up in the cockpit. While it was a bad dad joke, for sure, it was also true. After a frenetic 2.5 weeks in Seattle that included 11 days in the boat yard, many “boat units (aka $)” a whirlwind trip to Boston, a family funeral, a last Seahawks Sunday at CenturyLink Field, and a whole lot of work, we untied the lines once more this morning. And while our July 1 departure to British Columbia felt like “the big moment” of starting our new life, today is actually the beginning of something huge. We’re migrating south for the winter. See ya later, Seattle.
Today we’re rolling toward Port Angeles with our friends Scott and Abby on N47 Epoch. We’ll meet N63 Lady Di there, and on Friday morning we’ll head out to Neah Bay to stage for our “big left turn” around Cape Flattery. We have a lot of fun stops planned along the way to Mexico, including the Nordhavn Film Festival in Dana Point, CA. In San Diego, we’ll pick up six more Nordhavns for an important mission – the Nordhavn Taco Run. And as we should have much better cell service, we’ll update the blog more frequently. That said, the first post will be a look backwards at Desolation Sound in British Columbia. It’s been a little busy. So that story is coming soon!
In the meantime, here are some exciting images that depict how we managed to throw more thousands of dollars at Red Rover. She does appreciate the spa treatment!
