This is a story of how technology and being prepared helped us survive a very serious situation. It also reinforces how important preparedness is everywhere – at home, on vacations, in the wilderness, and on the water.
The fifth day of our South Puget Sound trip saw us leaving Olympia and heading to one of my favorite places – Jarrell Cove. It is a fantastic state park and cove with a ton of mooring options, and a nearby marina.
Our South Sound sailing trip was just getting started, with stops in Tacoma and at Eagle Island. Tacoma and the Gig Harbor area is where I grew up, so it felt very familiar. Eagle Island is a place I will always visit whenever in the South Sound.
Evening trips around Elliott Bay are some of our favorite memories. They usually involve friends who don’t normally sail, and show off the beautiful Seattle skyline along with some good food and drinks.
