Charing, Polly and took the Carol-Marie out for a day sail on the Columbia. Needless to say the docks were empty because the rains in the Northwest have begun. Despite the low water levels we were able get out of the marina without grounding.
Just to show how low the water levels were.
With no cover, I sat at the helm being pelted in the face with the rain throughly enjoying life, certainly in my element. Just getting settled, satisfied with the rain in my face, we reached the I-205 bridge and turned back to the marina. The time had passed and it was the closing day of the Island Cafe, cheap drinks to warm the soul, and freeze the bones.
Just after jibbing the rain stopped, and blue clouds opened up above us. Still drenched, Charing went forward and snapped a picture of Polly and I.

We put the boat away, tied her up good and headed off to close the Island Cafe. The Island Vice drinks are a secret mix of adult beverages, blended together with ice, and various flavorings. Throughout my numerous visits to the place researching the mixture, the only think I know for certain is it only takes one or two to change your perspective on the world in a good way.
