Port McNeill!!!! August 16th.

Left early again, no fog, no wind, tide in our favor, i was kind of ready for a bit of town, groceries, laundry, well, not laundry, but we needed to regroup, we saw a pod of Orcas, alongside Malcom island, first Orcas in a long time, i was so used to seeing the Humpback whales, this pod was 5 whales strong, one had a very large fin, many be lead made? not sure….       The marina was totally chuck full with boats , so we decided to anchor out, its very good anchoring , not very deep, quite well protected, right alongside Malcom Island’s West shore, a few other boats were there already, one of the them was MV Pacific Yellow fin!!!         I did a story about that boat a while back, took some photos of her inside.   SV Ectasea is in the harbour with Jo and Rusty Hammond and their dog Sam, Don and Susan are here from SV Gambit, they anchored out for a while near us but brought the boat into the harbor later on.    A lot of memories here in this town, lived here for one winter,  fell here, broke wrist and Annie died here, not all memories good….but we made some very good friends here, folks are kind and helpfull.
