Tuesday, May 30, 2017 – Port Townsend to Port Ludlow
We spent most of the day exploring Port Townsend, a town known for its wooden boats. We took time to walk through the Northwest Maritime Center & Wooden Boat Foundation building. It was neat to see people restoring and building wooden boats. We read the story of Juana – a wooden race boat designed by a 7-year old boy. We stopped at Sirens again for lunch, before heading back to the marina.
Just as we started to push away from the dock, I called for us to stop, as there was a large trimaran coming into the harbor. It was an odd sight, as the trimaran was being towed by a small rowboat!
We had no wind, and I was at the helm the entire time we motored South to Port Ludlow. The most challenging part of that trip was crossing a shallow area on the way into the harbor…and I did a great job! We anchored with ease then made Shrimp Pad Thai for dinner. We spent the evening on the boat, planning our route for the next day.
