Kenmore Mayor David Baker wishing us a bon voyage as we prepare to launch at Northlake Marina.

We’ll be leaving Kenmore Harbor in about a half-hour, bound today for Point Hudson Marina, in Port Townsend. Today’s Puget Sound marine forecast calls for “variable wind to 10 knots, becoming south in the afternoon. Wind waves 1 ft or less. Patchy fog in the morning.”

Yesterday afternoon, we launched Osprey at North Lake Marina. Kenmore Mayor David Baker and his delightful wife Sheri stopped by to wish us bon voyage, and to provide us with gifts to take to towns in Alaska.
