And we are off

After a really fun week with family and friends, all wrapped up with Kayla and Spencer's wedding, we had a day to chill and throw our stuff together. Joann and I left our house early Tuesday morning on route to pick up Keith and Darrell with the hope of clearing the city by 7:00.
We made Superior / Duluth by 4:00. I had the guys do a scavenger hunt to find all the safety gear and through- hull locations to familiarize themselves with the boat. We did some last minute boat chores, tightened down the rigging, filled the water tank, and ran the jack lines.
     Then it was off to the restaurant for some wonderful short ribs. Then we grabbed a cab and went to the Anchor Bar, which was a "must see" according to our dinner waitress. The walls of this place were absolutely covered with nautical stuff. Very cool!!! 
Wednesday we picked up the groceries and ice. We left Barker's Marina at 2:00 pm heading to the Knife River Marina about 20 miles to the northeast. This will give us a better sailing angle and make the sail to the Apostle Islands a little shorter for tomorrow. Joann met us there with the truck and spent the night so she would be fresh for the drive home in the morning.     Doug
