Getting into Bellingham Friday morning. A tent is still up on the back sundeck. Parked the boatcart at fairhaven dinghy dock next to fairhaven boatworks. Took amtrak to Seattle. Walked to ferry to Bremerton. Checked my email at the public library. Bought $15 tiny bicycle and two cheap wetsuits. Can't resist cheap wetsuits. Also a silk shirt to keep the sun off my arms. For the sake of reality I checked the distance to the truck with my GPS. I marked it when I parked it in case I came back down the Hood canal. 11 miles. Walked the bike til I came to a garage, put air in the tires. Hung my bag on the handlebars, rode 15 road miles back to the truck. Stopped at an AAA office on the way for some maps. What should the next trip be?
The ugly truckling was right where I left it in Ron Silver's back yard. Started right up.
Visited Renee + Kent for a day or two, played with their kids. Drove to Bellingham and got the canoe. David John of "Helen Highwater" of Bellingham says "A proa sails like a falling leaf."

Visited John again in Keyport, we went to Silverdale dye's inlet park the Hue He e Va a Hawaiian canoe club. Uncle Bob nice guy met in grocery lot with sleek solo outriggers on truck. Paddled 6 man canoes 7-8mph amazing. Good workout.

The End. For now anyway.

        44 days, 37 days I spent some time on the water. 7 days off on land = 7/44 = 1/6 of the days. If it's 750 water miles from Seattle to Ketchikan, my average day I went 750/37 = 20 miles a day.

Notebook: unlined Rite in the Rain waterproof notebook model#330 from
Pen: uniball micro deluxe waterproof pen made by mitsubishi pencil company, Various bic ballpoints, which happen to be waterproof as well. My favorite is the old kind with the transparent handle.
