Alaska 2013 July 23 Day 62 Red Bluff Inlet Chatham Strait 21 NM 2050 NM

More hot-springs  in the rain  in the morning and an easy ride to Red Bluff inlet. Indeed red bluffs are surrounding the inlet and also vertical cliffs and giant waterfalls. Water  is deep right to the shore and we were able to drop the prawn trap from the dinghy  right on the edge of shore and run out of rope at 45 meters.

We also have a  nice paddle up the river at the head of the inlet and see hundreds of pink salmon run away from the  kayak as we paddle. A rare sight, so many fish in such shallow water and such light green clear water.  There are also a lot of jelly-fish some of them quite large  and swimming at high speed.

We are nicely tucked away in a little cove behind an island at the head of the inlet and can listen to the rain all evening while  playing scrabble. Does not get any better.

    Sounds interesting and cozy playing scrabble on the dark waters and the rain pitter patter overhead or was it a heavy rain? I hope you are getting some sun now.
    By the way who won the scrabble? I can guess!
