August 2011 San Juans
Our goal was to arrive in Roche Harbor by 8pm on Saturday to catch the last performance of the summer by Island Stage Left. This year's "Shakespeare Under the Stars" play was "The Winter Tale". The acting was phenomenal, as usual. We came with our blanket, drinks, snacks, and of course, Salty. We love the casual feeling of it all. At one point one of the actor's surprised Salty and he jumped back, spilling wine all over us. It was pretty funny.
We enjoyed the rest of our stay in Roche Harbor relaxing, playing bocce ball, and exploring the sculpture garden.
I thought everyone might enjoy an updated picture of the girls. They are growing so fast!
We left Roche Harbor under cloudy, rainy skies and made our way to Prevost Harbor, Stuart Island.
Luckily the weather improved and we had a wonderful stay at one of our favorite islands.
Bob and I have been enjoying early evening dinghy rides. We are loving our "new to us" outboard. Dinghy exploring has been the best!
No trip to Stuart Island is complete without a hike to the school house (usually we hike all the way to the light house-but we were feeling lazy this time). While at the school, Salty practiced playing basketball. His jump shot sucks.
After Stuart Island, we progressed to Sucia Island.
The sunset was fantastic! Bob was able to enjoy it after diving on the boat to clean the prop and hull.
On this trip, the girls have become expert dinghy operators. If we could just slow them down! Just joking. They are very responsible, compared to some people I know (Bob).
