Velella’s crew casts off from Seattle on the foggy morning of August 30, 2009.

The crew departs Sequim, the last (pretty) port we were to see in Washington.

Surfing over the Newport, OR, bar with rather dramatic conditions.

Seals and sunfish and dolphins, oh my!

Aw, I love watching the videos! Meghan, it makes me miss you so much. I still can’t believe you’re gone, but it looks like you’re having quite a trip. 🙂 Please keep making videos and be sure to get everyone’s faces in there. That’s the best, being able to see you all!

Prescott–your assured knowledge makes me laugh…”did it just dive down really deep?” “yeah”… 🙂 of course you know what happened. Also, are you guys sure that wasn’t a shark? I could almost HEAR the Jaws theme…. and lastly, the porpoises were the best! Sooo amazing. Thanks for the great video!!!
