It’s dark in Seattle. But even by March things really pick up. We do pay in the winter, but those summer months are spectacular. Especially the secret sunny ones.
A fresh set of coatings. Inside and out. And hopefully a set of running lights soon so we can get around during these dark times in Seattle. She’s been up on land for a while, but far from dry. This is Seattle. Looking forward to getting Tinef on the water, and to the coming season.
And his latest collection of high-tech coatings. The fact that a Gantt chart is being used for this wooden boat project should tell you how significant it is. It was good to contribute the small bit I could while home in San Diego for the holidays.
Here’s a really neat project that uses an actuated trashcan and a Kinect to make sure every thing you throw it’s way makes it in the can. I especially like the way the entire story from concept through the development is told.
This was our first real west-coast #adventure for the year. You may have noticed from the test of our emergency beacon that we headed out to the Olympic Peninsula and camped on the beach. You’d think that July 2 would make for some #summer weather, but the Pacific Northwest Summer starts on July 5.
That means we got wet and soggy. The first night (spent at Yellow Banks) was great. Plenty of firewood and agreeable weather. We spent the night in a small spot tucked away between the trees. The second night was a bit wet. Unfortunately Cape Alava didn’t have a great firewood supply. I ended up getting more wet than it was worth trying to get a fire going. It was all good fun though. The Washington coast is an incredible place – full of beautiful scenery and some amazing wild animals. We were fortunate enough to see a few bald eagles, and then some deer came and joined us in our campsite. They were not afraid of us at all.
Complete with the obligatory orange and black umbrella. Got that box checked. No better way to stop the rain – drop in the U-Store and buy your reunions umbrella. As soon as we did, the sun came back out and revealed a gorgeous rainbow.
