Alaska 2013 Fogust 4th Day 74 Codville Lagoon (2) via Shearwater 82.3 NM Total 2590 NM

Our moving days are getting longer as we are anxious to get home soon.  12 hours today and more scrabble as the water is pretty flat. We start quite early in a bit of fog and  the cold weather, fogust it is! And cold to boot, I am back in full layers and camouflage.

We make good headway going down Finlayson Arm past Hiekish Narrows. Interestingly we are between Sarah Island named after Mrs Finlayson, the daughter of an HBC factor, and Roderick Island, name after Mr Finlayson, an HBC factor as well. Then we cut through the Oscar passage to avoid the big waves in Milbanke Sound and proceed through the Reid Passage, a really pretty narrow. We fuel in Shearwater, near Bella Bella and go round Denny Island to reach Fitz Hugh Sound.

As soon as we are anchored Dunnery jumps in the kayak and I swim 4 laps around the boat in frigid water. Two hours and a good dinner of Boeuf Bourguignon later, I am still cold.
