#57 Gig Harbor

We checked with the Arabella Marina in Gig Harbor and they made room for us. This is another first class marina operation except the mooring charges are way less than the 2009 Marina of the Year. Gig is a great place: many restaurants (try Kelly's and El Pueblito), 2 marine stores (West Marine is one), many pubs and a beautiful bay views. Spectacular homes crowd the shoreline here.

Several different marinas are available for transient boats.

Arabella's is highly manicured and has a choice location near the downtown area.

This past 10 days or so the Wild Blue has been manned (and woman-ed) by the Jan, Justin and Jerry Watkins. The Watkins are veterans having cruised on Wild Blue in Alaska, the Queen Charlottes and BC's Gulf Islands. Jan is a court recorder, Justin is a future U-Dub Huskie and Jerry is an educator in Southern California.

We'll spend two nights here before we move onto Des Moines near SEATAC for a crew exchange.
