My family and I sailed into the marina Sunday mid-day of Memorial Day Weekend for the evening. We enjoyed Gary's hospitality, the dock crew's singing, a campfire at the outdoor grill and of course some swimming with the kids. Long toss frisbee on the gorgeous grass alongside the marina was a treat, too. In the morning, a double mocha at the top of the dock prepped me for the lovely sail back to Bellingham on Monday, Memorial Day 2009. Thanks, Team Rosario, for the great weekend. Frankly, I don't mind the hotel being closed. The marina, marina grill, dockside swimming pool, showers, park-like setting, etc., are so delightful that this is a gem for boaters in the San Juans.

Until next time,
