PORT MCNEIL WELCOME

Nice clear cold morning and the rain had finally stopped. Had an easy trip across from Alert Bay to Port McNeill with the outgoing tide.

On arrival at Port McNeill the dock crew offered to help me with the lines which was welcome as the wind was quite blustery. Once tied up and secure I checked in at the Harbourmasters office and paid for 3 days berthage.

Later in the morning I had a walk around town, it’s quite a small place so didn’t take too long. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly. I also found ling life milk which is the good news, the downside is that its $4.65 per litre which is an outrageous and five times the NZ price.

Later I visited the laundromat and now have fresh bedding and clothes again. I have quite a long list of chores to undertake here and I will start with an engine oil change tomorrow morning.

This evening I was invited to an American boat for dinner. I had a really nice time, good food and pleasant company. They are leaving tomorrow but also headed towards Alaska so we may meet again further up the track. Total Voyage distance 266.5 miles.
