As far north as we've ever gone
Fred (finally) retired in May and we've just returned from our first big trip: a boating adventure in the Broughton Archipelago in British Columbia. We were joined by good friends and fellow C-Dory owners Jon and Cynthia Beltrami from Port Angeles. Their boat is called C-Lou (for Cynthia Lou) and ours is the Anita Marie (for Fred's mom). Jon and Fred finally got to take the fishing trip they'd always dreamed of, and as Jon said afterward, "It was the trip of a lifetime."
When we got married in 1987, Fred said he'd never go on the water again. After six years in the Navy, he didn't want to go near a boat. I don't know how it happened, exactly, but one day around 2000, he started talking about these really cool boats called C-Dories.
When Fred mentions something like this, he's probably already made up his mind. So, game for anything, I said, "let's do it."
We've been boating ever since.
