Alaska 2013 June 4 Day 13 Lowe Inlet Grenville Chanel via Hartley Bay 47.9 NM total 571

After another long soak at the Hot Spring to invigorate ourselves  on this rainy day we navigated around the North of Gribbell Island to Hartley Bay. It rained on and off, mostly on and visibility got so poor in the Grenville Channel that we turned the radar on.

The “Disney Wonders” a big cruise ship that we crossed as it was going South just June 2 just appeared on our tail to pass us going North through the Grenville Channel with a new load of Mickey fans. Just a handful of them was brave enough to stand on the upper deck and wave at us.

We are anchored in Nettle cove, in Lowe Inlet. This is an inlet on the east sid of Grenville Channel  about a quarter of the way up. We are in 25 meters of water with 150 ft of chain, facing  the Verney waterfall and a great beach. A prime observatory to keep track of eagles.

In this bad weather, we have been moving much faster than our planned itinerary. We will have more time to visit Alaska and the sun might come out!
