Waking up aboard the Woodwind. The view from the Boat & Breakfast!

Great breakfast after spending the night on Woodwind.

Lazy Hazy Day…….

It started out as a very lazy day and ended up a very hazy day. The winds were supposed to be light in the morning and it surprised us and picked up to 12 knots. We were able to sail out to one of the coal carriers anchored in the Bay waiting to head up […]
