After six weeks on the road, coming home to our boat is always exciting. We spent 3-1/2 dreary weeks on the East Coast with snowstorm after snowstorm, and were really looking forward to the Tacoma forecast with highs in the 60’s and lows in the 40’s and best of all sunny. It hasn’t turned out with highs in the 60’s but sunshine has abounded and our first full day back was filled with wind. Wind is always a good thing when you own a sailboat. Sunday we slipped the mooring lines for a delightful day of sailing in Commencement Bay complete with all the delights of this area. Mt. Rainier was in her glory and the blue sky made the water a sparkling deep blue. An eagle flew overhead worried by a couple of smaller birds. There were just enough clouds floating overhead for a nice contrast to the brilliant blue.
