Party at Teddy Bear Bay

Our last night on the boat and last anchorage of our adventure. As you might guess, the day was quite a party!

Our skipper and crew approve of this trip!
Zane looks a lot like his dad here, doesn't he?
"Every body say hallelujah!"
I have no words for this look.
This is how Captain Bob looked after teaching us all week.
Again, no words.

Nautical night aboard Tivoli!
Old sea dog and a beautiful wench.
Popeye & Olive Oyl
Popeye & Olive Oyl, Dogfish, and Mermaid.
Ryan said I look like this every morning.
No, show us the butterfly tattoo!
Spiny dogfish.

Yes, dancing, singing, and merriment!
Filling out the evaluations!
We had a wonderful adventure sailing the San Juan Islands. We learned a lot about sailing, the boat and how to explore the area by water. We would like to especially thank Captain Bob Hulett. He was a great teacher with extraordinary patience. He worked with us on knots, sailing and boat terms, navigation and all facets of boating. The kids enjoyed his jokes and you could tell Bob really liked working with them. We all would highly recommend Bob if you ever need a captain or sailing instructor. Our captain choice was made during a short phone call where we heard Bob calmly make suggestions to students as he taught and sailed on a boat. We did not regret our choice one minute.

Linda and I would like to also thank our friend David Kilmer who gave us steadfast advice about how to choose a sailboat chartering company, where to visit in the San Juans, how much to tip the captain and a million other questions we had both before and during this trip. 

Finally, we would like to especially thank the Edwards who came up with the idea of sailing the San Juans, helped us plan the trip, sailed us safely on legs of our journey, kept us entertained and put up with me each morning while I woke up and became human.
