A new year! I spent the last day of 2006 kayaking with friends at Orcas Island. It was a beautiful warm day for December with a little sunshine and only the faintest breath of wind. It was so good to be out on the water. Not only was it a perfect way to end the year but it was also a great reminder of why I'm building a Tiki 26. We were lucky too that we picked that day as January 1 woke us with a tempest of a storm. The cabin we were staying in is on the beach; literally only about three feet above high tide and 15 feet from that tideline so we could watch the tumbling waves out in the channel.

Our paddle took us out to Point Doughty. I love being in a kayak gliding over reefs and shallows. I kept thinking about how I would sail through such waters and anchor up in all the great little coves that are inaccessible to keel boats in the Tiki. This dreaming got me all fired up to start building again. After a few morning errands, I'll be heading out to the shed.
