Edmonds to the Locks was a nice down wind run.  Got right into the small lock and made a quick motor to Ivar's for dinner.  Then a night on Union Bay.  Sunday we went onto the Lake, going under the new SR520 high rise.  Cut over by Bill and Melinda's to borrow 5,000 cups of sugar and a Windows 10 upgrade patch, but they weren't home.  Went into Maydenbauer Bay to see how the other half lives.  They are doing quite well, thank you.  Then a cut across the North end of Mercer Island to confirm the we can't get under either of the high rises between MI and the Baker tunnels.  Thanks for nothing, WSDOT/FHA.  Went back to the North part of the lake under the East high-rise.  Saw the Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain slugging it out in battle.  Stopped at Carillon Point for dinner, and met a hearty sailor man who was signing on aboard the Lady for a 9 day stretch.  Mr. Midshipman Will went ashore and the skipper single handed back to Union Bay for the evening.  A great two days of yachting.
