Day Two – Blake to Fay-Bainbridge

We woke up on day two after a massive wind and rain storm hoping for better weather.  We got it.  It was sunny and dry, with not much of a breeze.  Packing the boats was a challenge as usual, and we had a host of sailors stopping by to say hi and see how we weathered the storm.  We paddled north, crossing to Bainbridge and then cruising the east coast with Seattle in the distance. 

Total distance for the day was 16 miles, which felt pretty reasonable.  More would be tough.  We decided to take a rest day the following day, because we had skipped a campsite on day one and went right to Blake.  Fay-Bainbridge is a pretty nice site located some what in a suburban neighboorhood.  Francis, a friendly neighbor, brought over some rhubarb sauce just as we started unpacking the boats.  Caught us a bit off guard, but it was delicious.  Thanks Francis!
