Kayaking, a Cat, and a Few Other Random Schooner Zodiac Photos

Not only did I get to see eight lighthouses in the San Juan Islands of Washington State from the point of view of the seas, and not only did I learn some sailing skills that I did not have before, I also had a chance for a brief kayak one evening just before the sunset hours during the Schooner Zodiac’s four-day Spring Lighthouse Tour. We were anchored in the very still waters of Hughes Bay at Lopez Island, so my husband and I put on life jackets and went kayaking around the peaceful bay. These are a few photos I took of the Schooner Zodiac during our paddle.

For sleeping, my husband and I each had a berth (like a bunk bed) in a room that could sleep up to eight. This room was also used as a reading room, sitting room, and a dining room. There were berths in other areas of the ship, as well as private rooms.

And this is the galley, where our delicious meals were prepared.

On board the Schooner Zodiac was Abby, the resident cat, who decided she liked to sleep in my husband’s berth or against his backpack during the day. (My husband is a cat person, and loved this!)

When the Schooner Zodiac is not on one of their sails, they are docked at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal.

A big thank you to the captain and the crew of the Schooner Zodiac for making my sailing experience a wonderful one!
