    Default Heading Out As the Fog Lifts

    We can get some beautiful days in February on Puget Sound, assuming the fog lifts

    As I pulled into Everett today, the fog was thick. I puttered around the boat, built a fire, and waited for the fog to lighten.

    Around noon it did and I headed out. I had about a quarter mile of visibility and dodged some container ships at anchor (They look like islands on the radar)

    The fog started to lift. The south end of Hat Island still had wisps of fog:

    I headed north along the western side of the island. The fog was gone as I rounded the north end and the Cascade Mountains were out:

    A bit farther along and Mount Pilchuck loomed up:

    I headed back to the barn, enjoying a working waterfront with snow covered peaks behind it

    What's not on a boat costs nothing, weighs nothing, and can't break

    Nice! What a concept being out on a boat instead of shoveling snow.

    I really miss those calm inside waters. 25 foot swells right now outside the bar here.

    In the next couple of years i hope to start fishing the salmon season in SE Alaska. I dream of getting back to Puget Sound in the fall and gunkholing in those calm waters.
