A year ago….

I have been contemplating , stopping the stories about the trip last year, but then i see the photos, photos of good friends, places we love, and so, i go on.      So, on July 21st, leaving the nasty kelp behind, we tied to the dock in Petersburg again.      I like it here, i like the town, the people, and …. our friends Will and Trish were here too,with their sailboat, “Shadow dancer II, ”  tied close to us!!!     My veggie basket was almost empty, it contained two potatoes , one zuccini, one onion and some very dried out carrots.   Time to shop!!!     There are no chain stores here in Petersburg, other then one Rexall drug store, this is quite a wealthy town because of the fishing industry, all the stores are run by Hammer & Wikan Inc.     www.hammerandwikan.com            The grocery store provides a free shuttle , to and from the store.    The yellow , funky sailboat we saw in Ketchikan, was docked here too, which gave us the opportunity  to have a good look at her.    Here are some things that caught my eye while staying here.  Lords pocket, Thorne bay, eagles in Ketchikan 2017 004View of Baird’s glacier , on the way to Petersburg.Lords pocket, Thorne bay, eagles in Ketchikan 2017 036Very dark, cloudy day. Lords pocket, Thorne bay, eagles in Ketchikan 2017 011She is registered in Washington State , i have the feeling that she is capable of dealing with very rough weather!!!Lords pocket, Thorne bay, eagles in Ketchikan 2017 010Her very dominant bow , red eagle eye for Port, green eye for Starboard!Lords pocket, Thorne bay, eagles in Ketchikan 2017 008I could not find a name on her and missed out on talking with her skipper. Lords pocket, Thorne bay, eagles in Ketchikan 2017 017Love this bit of advertising, sure catches your eye!

  1. Keep on posting, even if you are a year behind. It’s a precious thing to have these records of voyaging! I love to see the photos. If it is any consolation, I’m now 2, yes TWO, years behind! Life on land is too busy… -Jessie
