We’re back on the water for part 2 of our 2012 cruising! We’re having a very nice sunny and dry stretch of weather…but a little on the cool side. There’s definitely a nip of fall in the air.

Another Inspiring Sunrise
We are rapidly approaching the autumnal equinox (September 22nd at 7:49 AM PDT), and each day the sun is rising further and further to the south. Looking to the east from our boat on a recent morning, we saw this view of the sun rising as it came up behind the breakwater at Anacortes Marina. What a great way to start the day!
Back to the boat
After almost four weeks in Central Oregon, we finished the yard work at our house and returned to our boat in Anacortes Marina for some fall cruising. We had a good weather day for the 450-mile drive. Road construction and maintenance projects delayed us from time to time, but otherwise we had no complications.
Anacortes to Bend
It’s the middle of summer cruising season, so why are we leaving our boat for a few weeks? That’s one of the challenges of having to split our time between boating and maintaining a house and yard!
A laptop is a warm place
Rosie is a small kitty. She weighs around 7 pounds and has a very thin body. Maybe that’s why she’s always seeking out warm places to curl up. I don’t think of my laptop as a warm place, however, if I’m away and leave the laptop open, frequently I will find her curled up on the keyboard when I come back. I guess the laptop generates just enough heat to attract her.
