Shoal Harbour

We left Port McNeill on August 21st, weather was good, no wind, tide running in our favor, engine hours: 2170.5               Came across a saying , needs to be shared:

WHEN A MAN HAS NOTHING , HE MAY FINALLY LEARN THE VALUE OF ALL THINGS.

Alexander McKeag.

It was an interesting trip to Shoal harbour, animals everywhere, we saw Stellar Sealions, Sea otters , black bear,and two large spouts of a Humpback Whale; a good day!!        I was hoping to go and see Billy Proctor but Bert was undecided about everything, i believe something was bothering him abut the engine, there didnt seem to be proper charging and he thought it to be the alternator.  Once anchored in Shoal harbour, Bert changed the alternator , we have spares for just about everything except the engine…….

I did a bit of research of the Nautical miles we traveled,  here is an estimate;

GLACIER BAY- PRINCE RUPERT;380       PRINCE RUPERT-PORT HARDY ( PORT MCNEILL)277,     PORT HARDY-NANAIMO;207     NANAIMO-SIDNEY;73

SO 937 total, give or take, long trip.     here are some of the animals we met.

2017 156one of the Sea lions kept a very close eye on us!
