Everett to Port Ludlow
We were invited to attend a 4th of July celebration at
the Couches in Port Ludlow. They offered their dock for us to stay
We launched in Everett and crossed over below Whidbey
Island. Once out in Admiralty Inlet the seas got quite rough.
We fought our way across and much appreciated the protection the new
canvas provided. Nick got sea sick on the way over. Once
across we tied up to the Couches dock next to their powerboat.
There was a huge crowd including Dede and Steve and many others we knew.
The kids played in the sand beach and generally enjoyed running around.
After a huge dinner feed we all settled in for fireworks. I think

club outstation to watch the show. Once every explosive had been
lit we turned in for the night.
Port Ludlow to Everett
The next morning we woke up and had another breakfast

We had to get home early as the next day we were leaving for 4 days at
