Our Boat Doggie

Well we have returned home from yet another glorious time aboard the Champagne Lady! We set sail (well, it doesn't actually have sails but you get the drift...) June 19th (Penny's birthday) and travelled through the San Juan Islands and up into Canada spending two nights in Victoria for my 25th birthday. We spent about half the nights anchored in little quiet coves and the other half of the nights at docks (where we could shop and eat out!). We took many rides in the dingy - Kai loves resting his big head on the side and getting the wind in his face:) Although we didn't see any whales this trip, we did see some porpoises and made friends with Popeye the Seal at Friday Harbor (he's a long-time resident and they even have a statue of him there!) The weather was a little brisk the first few days but it continued to get warmer and sunnier throughout the trip and the skies at night were absolutely stunning!


  1. Your trip sounds great. I've never spent the night on a boat. How lovely. :)
