Esther's very own sailboat!
Ironically, the boat is an 'El Toro', the class of boat that I learned to sail on in a class at Sammish Lake twenty-five years ago! While Esther was checking out garage sales, I was out on my own sailboat, enjoying the unusual southeast breeze. Normally a north wind blows down the sound on a warm summer day. Today it was out of the south. I tried to tack down Colvos passage, but the tidal current and the slight breeze kept me at the mouth of the passage. After about three tacks with little progress, I changed course and went over to Yukon Harbor where I enjoyed a stronger breeze and no current. When I got home, Esther announced her own boating adventure!
