Tuesday July 21- we left Sitka around noon traveled about 43 miles to Still Harbor. For two days we will be in the North Pacific Ocean, out of the protection of the Inside Passage. The winds were light, less than 7 knots.
The anchor was dropped around 7:30pm in Still Harbor. For dinner I made Creamy Chicken and pasta with roasted red peppers.
After dinner I baked a banana bread, mostly to warm up the boat. In Sitka we purchased a bag of a dozen ripe bananas just for bread.
Wednesday July 22- anchor up by 8:30am. The sky is blue today! As we cruise south along the rocky Alaskan coast we passed more than two dozen vessels trolling the waters for fish.
By 5pm we dropped anchor in Egg Harbor.
For dinner I made pasta with a sausage in the sauce. Extra sauce was made so tomorrow I’ll add kidney beans and spices and make it chili. You may think it odd, chili in July but temperature here is in mid 50’s, 40’s at night, on the water.
Thursday July 23- departed Egg Harbor by 8:30am. Destination Totem Bay.
More whales today!
Friday July 24- anchor up before 8am, quite a foggy morning.
We arrived in Wrangell around 2pm, have a spot tied to the long dock.
