Tesoro’s Anacortes refinery was lit up in the early morning light, with the Cascade Mountains in the background. The interesting thing about taking this photo with a zoom lens is that it makes it look like our marina is built right next to the refinery! Actually, there’s quite a bit of distance between the marina and the refinery.
What wonderful weather we’re having now! Just in time for us to leave the marina and return home. Bummer! But the sunny skies, calm winds, and dry weather have really helped as we reach the end of our list of fall projects to get Phoenix ready to sit over the winter months. We don’t even mind the cool nights and morning fog!
The storm clouds were slow to leave the area today, but the wind finally settled down. The water in the fairway between B Dock and C Dock was completely calm by late afternoon and it was hard to believe that it had been so windy yesterday.
After a very windy and rainy weekend, the storm is finally on its way out of our area. The wind continued to gust this morning, with rain showers that were heavy at times. The wind finally died down by mid-afternoon, even though rain showers are continuing into the evening.
