One of the exceptions rather then the rule for bays in the San Juan Islands, Blind Bay is nearly a uniform depth of 15 to 25 feet and never plunges deeper at the center as so many other bays do. So far our time here has been pleasant, with just enough breeze to turn Odyssey, giving us different views of the bay during the day.
We took a leisurely tour of the shore with our dingy, heading to the small mom and pop store to check it out and pick up some snacks.
We had a friendly chat with a couple who have been sailing these waters for the last twenty years and then motored over to Blind Island State Park, no more then a wildflower covered rock in the mouth of the bay. A beautiful view with crystal blue waters.
After a picnic lunch and a walk about we were back on the water to head home. We had changed the dingy harness that morning so I did a few laps around Odyssey to take a look. Sarah took some great pics. That’s a beautiful boat!
In the evening a large thunder system came through the area just east of us. Amazing sky, thunder, but surprisingly little wind. Blind Bay seems very protected.
