This is a day off, no nautical miles, just a lot of running around, a day to relax during our three month vacation while on retirement ! We are not, however, spared continuous rain. Still, nothing can spoil the freedom to sleep in, wander around aimlessly and having no chores to do except pre-clearing Immigration and Customs for tomorrow as we will land first, away from the Ketchikan office, in Foggy Bay. Dunnery is also checking tides and weather, and minimizing the wave size in his report to me! I am preparing loads of salt and vinegar potato chips, soda crackers and tonic water to prevent sea-sickness.
Also a big thank you for all the comments you post. We love hearing from all of you, so please give us news, we like it very much!
A great artifact on the ocean front is a little Japanese fishing boat. Read its story, it is so tragic and sweet at the same time.
Interestingly, the Japanese man’s home town is a twin-city to Prince Rupert.
We Visited the Museum of Northern BC, a gem of Tsimshian treasures, old and more recent, presented in wonderful long-houses on the water.
