Portage Island Playtime

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

On Thursday, Rick took two of the children, plus two of their friends, out in the little Pelican sailboat. They set sail from the Fairhaven launch in Bellingham, WA, heading for Portage Island. They enjoyed a good stiff breeze of about ten miles per hour. Here are a few photos of their outing:
