4th of July Weekend

What a wonderful weekend!  We finally got in from Boise, after being stuck for a couple days (we fly standby and all the flights were full), and headed over to Liberty Bay/Poulsbo on Saturday afternoon.  We brought my nephew, Jeff, back with us, so he could experience boat life.  We had a great sail across the sound and pulled into Liberty Bay around dinner time.

Underway:

Our friends CB & Tawn came over to chat and enjoy the evening.  We woke up the next morning and headed into Poulsbo for doughnuts at the local bakery. Yummm!  Scott and the kids headed back to the boat while I stayed in town to do a little exploring.  The kids started fishing and Zak and Jeff were thrilled when they started catching dogfish sharks:

 

Jeff learned how to drive the dinghy and I finally convinced him to take the kayak out:

Later in the day on the 3rd, Unfurled tied up next to us.  It was great seeing them and seeing their beautiful new boat.  As the sun went down, we started getting comfy to watch the firework show:

The fireworks were great!  We headed home on the fourth and enjoyed some o.k. sailing.  The wind died and we decided to just hang out for awhile.  The night ended with a dock party with our neighbors (the few that were there).  It was a great weekend.
