Galley Wench Tales

Exploring the world through the people we meet
and the food they eat.

For my friend Lili . . . 
on her sailboat Heron, stuck in the Canaries because of coronavirus restrictions. It’s so dry there, they water the cactus. “I’d love to see more of your flower pictures,” Lili told me.
Historic Fort Vancouver, Washington, once a thriving trading post for Hudson Bay Company,
selling boatloads of beaver pelts.
These photos were taken the last two days of April at Fort Vancouver, just across the Columbia River, that divides Oregon and Washington. It’s a 5-minute drive or a 20-minute walk to it.

Lili may need to wait until the end of the month unless restrictions open sooner to watch the video as her wifi aboard her boat is limited.

We’re here until June, then anchors away!
Another marina near us on Hayden Island where I usually take my evening walk.
