Broken Zodiac

Click to see better
This story appears in the Peninsula Daily News:
FRIDAY HARBOR — The 126-foot main mast of a schooner often seen in Port Townsend, Victoria and the San Juan Islands snapped while sailing near the San Juans on Saturday.
Two passengers were injured in the afternoon incident aboard the 86-year-old Zodiac, a Coast Guard spokesman said Saturday night.
An eyewitness reported that 22 schoolchildren were aboard for a day sail in clear and sunny conditions when its main mast broke in half and fell across the port side.
The Coast Guard responded to a distress call from the Bellingham-based charter vessel about 2 p.m.
The 127-foot, double-masted schooner was just north of Lummi Island, and the Coast Guard launched an MH065 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station/Sector Field Office Port Angeles as well as two 33-foot response boats out of Bellingham.
 I Love this ship 
I will be glad when they get her fixed.
They were so lucky that there were no
serious injuries .
If you want to read more the address is on my header.
To help out sign up for 2011  sailings.

A day in La Conner

Friday we went to La Conner and had a good time
walking around the shops
This is called the Rainbow Bridge

This is Nasty Jacks they have lots of old oak furniture
that I just love

Very cool bench

Nice water fall off of the deck

The little blue house is shaped like a boat and you can rent it for 
the night or a weekend. I think it would be fun.
 We had a wonderful dinner on a boat with my sons father and his sweet wife.
It was a great day

Across the street they were installing new parking  things that

Last Sunday

My son in Texas sent me this picture of his new
baby. The big ones are a whopping 3 feet tall.
They are soooo cute
I guess that makes me a gramma again

Last Sunday we had tours on the Zodiac and we had 577 visitors.
 I met one of my FB friends her daughter took this picture of
her and me and her family.

The Zodiac had her flags flying

I am trying to catch up on a few things around the house.
I feel bad about not posting or commenting.

Still in April -- The Winery

This is the winery we went to It was way up on a hill.
Pamela and I had a glass of wine.
I would loved to have that purple T-shirt with the group therapy
wine glasses on it but I thought $42.00 was a little to much.
The tulips were outstanding and I really like the rocks that are covered
the red flora I don't know what it is but it was very pretty

 This old cannon was very cool.

Looking over the valley

I don't know what this is used for it looks like an old carriage house,
but I love the rock work.

And my sweet daughter is (King) Queen  of the hill
It was a great visit.

Love Hugs and Good Thoughts to all of you

A Saturday of fun and work

I worked on the Zodiac Yesterday and when I had finished a job
I was doing I went to Richard to be assigned another. He ask me if I knew
what Baggywrinkles were. Do you know what they are? I could have said
"sure I have a few "but I didn't say that.(LOL)

The above are Baggywrinkles.
"Chafing gear on standing rigging to prevent sail wear. It looks like great wrappings
of wool from a distance,but is made from bits of rope"
I learned how to do this.

The tide was low so I could see the muscles and barnacles in the

There was allot of white painting being done yesterday

First it Had to be cleaned then sanded then cleaned again. You can see Richard
back there with the vacuum.

The white painting is complete and next Sat. the plastic winter wrap is
coming off and then the caterpillar will become----------------

A beautiful butterfly and we will
GO SAILING!!!!!!!!!

Flowers and sky

This is our rhododendron in the front of the house
last year it froze and didn't bloom at all
I  ran out of the house in my nightgown to get this picture
before it went away

This one too.

Again I am sorry for not posting or commenting for a while.
It has been a strange week.
I broke my glasses,My mom fell off her bed she was not hurt,but
she could not get up. I just had a giggling fit when I wrote that.

It was time for my blood test  and I don't know what else ,
but you know I love all of you and I will try to get caught up.
