HEADING SOUTH TO VICTORIA

This morning Ngozi departed Truce on her way back to New Zealand.  The Harbourmaster at Hoonah very generously gave her a lift up to the airport.  I am now alone again and have missed having company today.  And no, it’s not just to have help with the cooking and cleaning! The voyage from Canoe Cove … Continue reading HEADING SOUTH TO VICTORIA

BARTLETT COVE TO HOONAH

We arrived back in Hoonah this afternoon after an easy crossing of Icy Strait in calm conditions. Calm conditions meant we had to motor again which is not restful but preferable to wind on the nose, so we will take it. In Icy strait there is a lot more ebb than flood so correct timing … Continue reading BARTLETT COVE TO HOONAH

DESTINATION ACHEIVED

Today we arrived in Glacier Bay. It’s been a long winding road to get here and now we have a permit for a few days to explore and experience the wildlife and natural wonders. The trip across Icy Strait this morning was easy for a change and the forecast headwinds didn’t turn up. The entry … Continue reading DESTINATION ACHEIVED

As I have a couple of days to wait and ‘no particular place to go’ I decided to sit back, chill out and ‘smell the roses’ as my wife says.  After a beautiful calm night and a good sleep, I set out this morning to have a look at Neka Bay and the river that … Continue reading SMELL THE ROSES

ICY STRAIT TO PORT FREDERICK

Last night was uncomfortable, gusty winds into the anchorage, nothing serious just disturbing and restless.   Today we moved east down Icy Strait and into Port Frederick which is just past Hoonah.  The cruise ship Noordam came past the anchorage at six this morning and I encountered a few more cruise ships on the way. Once … Continue reading ICY STRAIT TO PORT FREDERICK

INIAN ISLAND

I awoke this morning to thick fog, a sign summer is here.  The fog cleared in the early morning and the sun came out.  But then a strong westerly wind set in and finally rain again.  A real mixed up day but plenty of variety. In the morning I motored over to Inian Island which … Continue reading INIAN ISLAND

RELAXING, ELFIN COVE

This morning I arose at five thirty as usual, had a look around and was not too impressed, raining.  Then listened to the weather forecast, not nice.  My bed still had a bit of warmth in it so I jumped back in for another hour of sleep. Around ten in the morning I decided to … Continue reading RELAXING, ELFIN COVE
