Bainbridge Island, our favorite place in 2015

Bainbridge Island, specifically Winslow Wharf Marina, has become our favorite place to visit this last year.  Grace was brand new, so shaking out all of the bugs and getting used to things was a priority.  Winslow Wharf Marina is only about an hour by motor from our home marina, Elliott Bay Marina.

I think we visited here at least 5 times this season, if not even more!

Josh in the cockpit enjoying the sun!

This weekend was great weather-wise, and it was one of the first times that Josh was able to come along on a trip without tons of extra people, which was very important to me!

It was also a huge full moon, which we were able to see while sitting in the cockpit on the warm summer night.

One of our favorite things about Winslow is Doc’s Marina Grill, specifically their Chicken Fried Steak.  It has to be one of the top 3 that I’ve ever eaten!

The return trip was not as fun, as there was hardly any wind, so motoring was the primary method for movement.  We explored a bit of the Blakely Rocks and headed back home, a restful weekend had by all!

About Steve Mitchell

I live in Seattle, WA and love sailing, technology, & playing and composing music. I started playing the piano when I was 3, and ended up figuring out many other instruments along the way. I'm an avid sailor and have a 2000 Beneteau 311 named Grace, and sail it whenever and wherever I can.
