We’ve decided….

Old buildings like this are built and maintained with love, by people to wants to preserve the culture.

I heard so much about life in Port Townsend. Doug’s been there at the Wooden Boat show of 96, and once also on delivery of a friend’s boat. He loved the place, the atmosphere, the people and that everything revolve around yachting. I think… only think… that I will love this place too. So we have to check it out, or at least I have to find out for myself if this is going to be our next base camp.

This is where sailmakers and riggers work, and its right in front of the Point Hudson marina.

Almost every weekend, we drive up to Port Townsend, getting to know the place, the curio shops… and checking out where we would put up Calliste for winter while we stay warm over in Singapore.

And I too fell in love with this rustic old town. Quite head over heels, really. Immediately I decided I like to make this our base camp, Doug agrees too… but a lot depends on fate. Who knows how things work out, not ahead of time anyway.

Then things just fell into place. We found the perfect place for storing Calliste over winter, at Bayshore Storage just outside of PT. .. That is we can work out how to transport Calliste from the port to Bayshore… Doug have some reservations trucking, but we cant just splash her from the port and drive over… so we’ll have to sleep over it, make lots of phone calls and see what can be done.

In the meantime, Calliste is on her way on board CGM La Scala.
