Alaska 2013 June 21 day 30 Wrangell AK 20 NM Total 1035 NM

As we reached the mouth of Anita Bay, Zimovia Strait was invisible. A bank of opaque fog had rolled in early morning. We had to stand by for a while and then  proceeded as the fog lifted with the radar and the AIS to keep en eye on other boats, otherwise ghost ships drifting along.

The fog completely lifted as we arrived in Wrangell, a very typical Alaska fishing harbour. Only three cruise ships have stopped by this year, so everybody is extremely welcoming and pleasant. We are in Reliance Harbor among the fishing fleet, which is fairly idle at the moment.

We had a great dinner at the Stikine Inn, but the funny thing is that, whether from stores, fishermen and even restaurants, it is virtually impossible to get fish except the token frozen halibut not processed anywhere near here!
