Wednesday, May 31, 2017 – Port Ludlow to Langley
After a peaceful breakfast watching deer roaming the shores, we left Port Ludlow with Eric at the helm. We caught some wind and had a nice sail through Admiral Inlet. At one point, we had to duck into Useless Bay to avoid a fishing boat and a Navy ship in the traffic lanes. After tacking back toward the inlet, I took over the helm and sailed us all the way around Possession Point. We lost our wind in Possession Sound and motored the rest of the way to Langley.
We anchored just outside Langley’s tiny marina, where we enjoyed a very special treat – Sticky Toffee Pudding made by Kathleen! We rowed the dinghy to shore and paid the $5 landing fee before walking up a steep hill to the Town. We stopped to take a picture next to the statues of the Bronze Boy & His Dog, who are said to be the guardians of the Saratoga Pass.
We walked to a laundromat and stopped at a Public House for a beer to pass the time while the laundry was finishing.
We made Hawaiian Chickpea Teriyaki for dinner. It was a rocky, squeaky nights sleep in a fairly unprotected anchorage.
