Easter Weekend

With a good weather forecast for Easter weekend, we decided to sail to Poulsbo, one of our favorite Puget Sound destinations.  The sail over on Saturday was spectacular with sunny skies and a steady 15 knot northerly which meant a beam reach across the sound.  Sailed through Agate Pass with the wind on our stern and a positive 4 knot current.  Sailed all the way to Liberty Bay then docked at the Poulsbo marina.  Jacintha had fun coloring and decorating Easter eggs and Cap’n Easter Bunny hid them all over the boat after she went to sleep.  She had fun the next morning finding them all.  Walked to a church in town for Easter service, then went out for a nice brunch at Mor Mor Bistro.  Visited our favorite chandlery and our favorite ice-cream shop (Mora Creamery) before pushing off around mid-afternoon.  Motored most of the way back except towards the end when the wind picked up half way across the sound, than had about an hour wait at the locks.  Pulled into our home dock just as it was getting dark.
