What a summer!
Feels like just yesterday, yet, hard to believe, it’s December already. I guess I missed the whole posting pictures during the summer thing. Busy I guess. Well, it was a wonderful summer of sailing on Heather, keeping her moored in Astoria, OR. Pictures and some notes below (not sure what happened to the picture size part way through, sorry).
And I got to do lots more sailing, unfortunately all within about 15 miles of Astoria. It turns out that a big river mouth with one of the most dangerous shipping lanes in the world and 3-5 knot tidal currents isn’t the greatest place to sail, although it is good for getting you in “oh shit, gotta figure this out” situations to build skill and test systems. At least that is what I kept telling myself. But, I did go on some other adventures, often with wood boats, so am including them here. More Heather stuff in the next post.
