TRAMPING IN THE WOODS

This morning I did the Sunday ritual of checks and cleaning.  I also finally got around to clipping and securing the cables for the AIS that had been outstanding for so long.  One of my opening windows (Port) has been leaking slightly since I last had a go at fixing it, this morning I did a proper job and everything is watertight again.

Having toiled away all morning I packed a backpack and went for a walk in the woods in the afternoon.  It was a sparkling day with crystal clear visibility.  I found a track leading to a high lookout point with spectacular views out across Chatham Strait and back across the Baranof Island to the mountains.  I walked for miles, the sea legs may be aching tomorrow.  I will take a hot tub later.

I am now back at sea level and planning my departure for tomorrow morning.  The forecast is good and the tide in my favour for the first few hours.  My plan now is to work around to Peril Strait and head down to Sitka.  I am in need of some fresh provisions and will run out of gas in a few days, Sitka seems like the best place to replenish.
