I wanted to make sure I followed up on the promise to post the sailing schedule for the Hyas yiem, leaving tomorrow from Priest Point State Park near Olympia and heading north toward Bellingham. The itinerary is listed here in a paragraph or two but first, I just want to say a few words about what an amazing evening was had by all last night at the premiere of Secrets of Augustine.
Thanks to the Blue Mouse Theater, Satori Bob for the excellent tunes, all the great organizations who set up informational tables and carried the evening, Todd Fischer for his amazing talent and generosity and our sponsors for providing us with some much-coveted raffle goodies. The film was fun and it was a great night of connecting and reconnecting with old friends and new ones. I’m sure we’ll do it again.
As for the Message in a Plastic Bottle, that all starts at about 9:00am tomorrow. I’ll post updates along the way and I’d love it if you see a day on the schedule where you could come out for a while on the water with me or say hello along the route. As always, if you have any questions, call or write anytime.
