Fall 2017 Seattle to Bainbridge Island

Fall 2017 Seattle to Bainbridge Island

There are so many Latin cultures in Seattle it's Fiesta Patrias instead of  Dies Y Seis

Some Fall Rain, but not much
A cool exhibit from school kids at Seattle Center

I always thought vines were evergreen, deciduous vines add lots of color to the PNW Autumn

Bainbridge Island autumn colors

Every Fall day has been good for the sailors.

Pacific Northwest Ballet at the Sam Sculpture Gardens

That crane is on a Barge.

Quietinng the engine, a little sound proofing for the Engine compartment.

This 3M tape is good stuff.

All Done. May add a couple of more pieces to make it even quiter.

Got the new VHF and Ram mic installed now for the IPad mount. 

And USB power port. Going wireless soon for Radar and AIS. 

We love Earshot Jazz, this years festival is Incredible, 
So Far we have seen Brooklyn Raga Massive,

Omar Sosa Quarteto AfroCubano, & 


Our first time at the Moore. We saw Hudson here

The Cathedral ceiling of the lobby has Eight of the Greek Muses around the perimeter. One of the ushers told us that it was our job to determine which of the nine Greek muses was missing and why?


Our daughters family is house hunting, not easy in Seattle. This one was built in 1938

Has a great view out back though. It seems that the Daddy, Mommy, and the two kids  each have their own criteria for the house. Is there one that can meet the diverse demands for sale in the right neighborhood?

Taking the kids to Pebble Beach is perfect for sunny fall days

Not a Cloud at sunset.

The Big Dark??? It is just a Fall Storm, nothing new for the Pacific Northwest but due to the incredible weather the Locals forgot where they lived!

The final days of October were more like a normal September forecast.
Finally got Big D out for a sail, the morning was cool with North winds 15-20

The afternoon was sunny and clear

The next Day was sunny and clear, no wind, Not often you see a complety flat puget Sound

A walk at Faye Bainbridge Park

Then we found the memorial for the Japanese American internment during WWII

Bainbridge Island had a significant Japanese American population that were all rounded up and sent to internment camps during WWII. 

It seems we did not learn from our own history.

Pritchard Park
Working hard to turn a Superfund site into a park:

I hear an old man lives on one of these old tugs and the other one is still active. 

A nice picnic at the West end of Eagle Harbor, there is no water here at low tide.

Clara was Woody from Toy Story

and brother Drew Buzz Lightspeed showed up this Halloween
 To Infinity and Beyond!
We celebrated Halloween by volunteering for Ear Shot Jazz at Columbia City Theatre

We were treated to a young group of excellent musicians posing and playing your favorite Frank Zappa tunes from the Mothers of Invention. 

Fall 2017 Seattle to Bainbridge Island

The local natives forgot where they live since the Summer was rainless and the Fall November and October warmer with very little rain. Cooler temps yes but not cold and plenty of sun. Shamefully some are hoping this is the new normal for this corner of the US. When the weather is so nice you really do not even want to consider climate change, Global Warming. It is so hard for some to understand the rational of Global Warming when the winters are even more severe. So they had to just change the term to Climate Change so that the reality might be more convincing to those not living in coastal areas. If it were not for the threat of earthquakes I think the Pacific Northwest might become overpopulated for sure. I mean you really need to consider Earthquakes before moving here, do not come just for the nice weather, it is hard enough now to get a boat slip, for reals!

Just In
