Washington State: Sailing to Port Madison


Sunday morning in Port Madison

Sometimes you just have to get out of town. Saturday was beautiful here in the Pacific Northwest (sorry about that spring snow storm, Chicago…), a day that absolutely demanded you be outside. A last minute decision was made and Saturday evening I found myself loading groceries into a dock cart and motoring west out of the marina. We got to Port Madison around 10pm, dropped anchor, and woke up to a misty morning. Sunday was full of rain and sailing but I wouldn’t have it any other way. We sailed across the breadth of Puget Sound on a single tack before finishing the afternoon dinking around and getting the rust off the old sailing skills. It was totally worth cramming all my chores into Sunday evening.
