This is the travel log of my week-long sailing trip. This year we returned to the San Juan Islands in Washington State. The San Juans sit between Vancouver Island and the mainland.

We were able to charter the same boat we had last year. Anais is a 42 foot catamaran with four berths, two heads, and plenty of room. My Dad, Captain Joe, has sailed her three times now and grows more attached with each voyage.

Day 1: DFW to Bellingham
Day 2: Bellingham to Sucia
Day 3: Sucia to Roche Harbor
Day 4: Roche Harbor to Stuart Island
Day 5: Stuart Island to Friday Harbor
Day 6: Friday Harbor to Rosario
Day 7: Rosario to Fairhaven



Note: I took a digital camcorder this year instead of my analog camera. I was trying to travel light. The camcorder takes video as well as stills. I was pretty happy with the quality, and the widescreen stills are kind of cool, but I’m not ready to give up on film.
