Fishing Charter off Long Beach, WA with Dad & Joseph

2 weeks ago
We awoke at 4am to head to Ilwaco and board the Sarah Kay for our morning journey out to sea. Once we headed out and rounded the mouth of the Columbia River our trusty skipper took us north where, just after sunrise, the fish were practically jumping in the boat.

Beach Time with Family

I got my camera out after the closer, big stuff hit but I got a couple decent shots once the storm cell moved to the north of Seattle a bit. Plus the Moon was peaking out and that wheel thing on the water is just pretty.

Tie Friday with Aaron, Company boat trip on Lake Union

Today was tie Friday (my unofficial movement to get slacker devs in the Northwest to dress it up a bit) but also a boating kinda' day. We closed the IlluminAge office early and headed out onto Lake Union on a super comfy and silent rental electric boat.

Power substation fire Seattle, Korean BBQ dinner
