Sharks After Dark Approaches!

Tonight at 9:00 on Discovery Channel! Potential glimpses of M/V Katherine Jane on Sharks After Dark. I’m pretty excited about it, while also being well aware that we may not even get a peek at her.

We’re off to watch over at a friend’s house ~ cross your fingers!

Hot Summer Nights

It’s been so hot here lately that when I looked at the thermometer on the helm station today and it read 87 degrees, my brain registered that as “Oh wow, it’s really cooling off!” We’ve been out enjoying the boat constantly ~ swimming in Lake Washington, jumping off the top deck, anchoring out overnight, chartering for the Blue Angels. Good times.

There have been company parties, swimming at Golden Gardens (OK, just a quick dunk really ~ even on a 100 degree day, the sound is still cold!), mucho beach volleyball.

We’ve camped on the beach at La Push, doing the whole Twilight tour in Forks (yes, I’ve read all the books! I’m a good Twilight Mom), hauling our bear canister along with us.

The captain has been fishing ~ caught 2 sturgeon, both too small, but hey, he had a blast anyway!

And me? I’m looking forward to our next big project in a couple of weeks: the haul-out of Katherine Jane. My camera finally died yesterday (it’s been awfully well-used over the past several years), so I’m not sure yet how I’ll bring you the play-by-play, but I’ll figure something out. Happy Summer, everyone!
