Customs Puget Sound

Back in the US

We left Bedwell Harbour around 7 this morning and made way for Friday Harbor arriving by 10. It’s a busy place, but we managed to squeeze into the custom’s dock without waiting. David rang and had to go to the office to show our passports and cruising permit (most folks are cleared in by phone), but nobody came aboard. It was a very easy process and lacked all the drama we’d been expecting (dreading). Fifty minutes later, we were on our way again and decided to go as far as Port Ludlow in Puget Sound. We had a great push from the current around Point Wilson and Marrowstone Point seeing over 10 knots of speed. The waters down here have a life of their own and never fail to amaze me when they bubble and breathe.
