Today Ngozi and I had some quality time together in Hoonah. Once the usual chores of laundry, provisioning and maintenance were out of the way we went for a walk around Hoonah. Its not a big place so its not a difficult mission but the locals are friendly and always have time for a chat so it’s a pleasant experience.
In the evening we visited Icy Strait Brewing again to sample the latest brew. It’s pretty strong stuff and after three glasses each we felt no pain.
Ngozi is flying out to New Zealand tomorrow morning, it has been fantastic to have company again but the time has gone too quickly. I will be sorry to see her go. We have been very lucky with the weather, beautiful calm warm days and balmy nights. We have experienced the Glaciers calving, whales feeding and a whole range of wildlife – apart from bears. It’s been a unique experience for both of us.
Tomorrow I will start the next voyage south from Hoonah to Victoria BC. I haven’t decided which route south to take yet, maybe the weather will decide for me in the morning. Total Voyage distance 1,632.8 miles.
