The Sensation of Discovery

San Juan Voyage

As promised, here’s a link to our photo gallery of last week’s cruise through the San Juan Islands:

San Juans Charter 2007

In addition to the sailing and exploring, it’s an interesting trip in terms of finding nature that is still wild in many respects. Stuart Island, for example, only has 20-30 residents. It has been logged many times, and there’s a dirt road around the island, but still it is quiet and peaceful.

On our last night, we stayed at Inati Bay on Lummi Island. Lummi is quite large, and has 500-600 residents on its north end, but we anchored at one of the few bays on the south end of the island. It was really deserted there. We hiked up a dirt road and found sets of silent logging equipment left lying around, as if the loggers had just left or simply vanished. It was somewhat scary for the kids, but a good example of natural isolation and how the tools we use to harvest are sometimes the only things there.

Anyway, back to my work on the ISM workshop that I’m starting tomorrow. I’ll be gone for four days to Salt Lake City to teach the workshop, and I’m looking forward to it.
