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. View of Baird’s glacier , on the way to Petersburg.Very dark, cloudy day. She is registered in Washington State , i have the feeling that she is capable of dealing with very rough weather!!!Her very dominant bow , red eagle eye for Port, green eye for Starboard!I could not find a name on her and missed out on talking with her skipper. Love this bit of advertising, sure catches your eye!
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
