[Kensblog] Testing the use of video in my blog entries – Flying Kenmore Air

Greetings all! I want to experiment with including some video in my blog entries this summer. This is just a quick test of some poorly hacked together video that I shot recently while traveling home from the boat on Kenmore Air. This was strictly a test to see how the video would look on Youtube, and how it would appear in the blog entry. So … don’t expect much….

Sans Souci sitting at the dock in Seattle
I am happy to report that Sans Souci will soon be back on the water! A quick recap: Last December we shipped Sans Souci from Mallorca Spain to Seattle. This was the final chapter in what was loosely intended as a circumnavigation. From Spain we had planned to cross the Atlantic and cruise the Caribbean, but Sans Souci had been away from home for seven years and was starting to send us subtle messages that it was time for some extensive maintenance.
