Portage Island Playtime

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:

    Lovely pictures. I can feel the cool water and the nice breeze. And I laughed at the last photo — what a surprise!

    that bull doesn’t really look very happy to see the camera does he? Love the pictures. What a fun sailing trip.

    Very lovely photos, the weather looked perfect. And looks like they all had a nice time…except for running into Mr Angry Bull. That would be a surprise!

  4. What a pleasant surprise to find your link at Ruby Tuesday! Love the touches of red in your ‘vacation’ photos. Sorry … I have no clue what the bird might be but hopefully someone more knowledgeable than me will drop by. I played at Small Reflections.
    Hugs and blessings,
