A great weekend trip.  Though the wind was light Saturday from Edmonds to Poulsbo, we got a good anchorage spot.  Enjoyed a fine dinner with one of the crew's family ashore.  Sunday was a festival day in town, and then the Viking Fest fireworks in the evening.  With a morning departure to beat the currents at Agate Pass, we motored through, but then got some good wind all the way across Port Madison and up to Appletree Cove.  The anchorage was a bit bouncy, but we were only staying for the fireworks.  We explored the town bit then some crew left on the Kingston ferry before work Tuesday.   Watched the fireworks from the boat, then hauled anchor.  After cleaning the "sea monster" off the anchor, we motored across the dark sound back to our home port.  Tired but happy for all the good times spent.
