I'm Dreaming of a Small Ship Cruise

I have been longing to take a cruise on the adorable David B, ever since watching this video on the Northwest Navigation website. Today, I visited an open house on the boat, which was all decked out with colorful flags for the occasion. Christine met us on the dock and invited us into her galley where beautiful and delicious appetizers flanked her "sweet heart" old-fashioned wood stove. Then she took us below deck to peek at the four cozy and inviting cabins (I could have crawled in an taken a nap on the spot). The forward head (bathroom) sports a vintage tub and a modern mini gas fireplace for warmth. When Jeffery fired up the engine, the deep rhythmic rat-a-tat-a, rat-a-tat-a play harmony with the splash of waves and caw of gulls overhead. I could easily imagine myself letting all my cares go as i drift through the islands on the David B, hiking, kayaking and gourmet snacking as I go. I MUST book a trip with Northwest Navigation!

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
