Charles enjoying some sun

Charles is getting braver everyday. He has started venturing out into the cockpit while we are under way. And when we stop for the day, he always comes out for a look around. It will be fun to see what he does once we arrive back at our home dock!

July 16, 2007
Time: 0945 Hrs: 1012
Humidity: 79% Temp: 17 C Light rain, wind 15 -20 knots, foggy.
Lv: Brundige Inlet, Dundas Island
Course: Chatham Sound > Venn Passage > Prince Rupert Harbour
Once we had left the protection of our anchorage, we put up the sails and sailed half way across Chatham Sound before the wind died down. It rained most of the day, but by the time we arrived in Rupert, it looks a little brighter.
Arv: Prince Rupert
Lat: 54 19.54 N
Lon: 130 18.36 W
Time: 1700
Trip: 34.1 nm Log: 4011.0 nm
Fuel: 136 L $163.60
Oil Change: Hrs 1018.9
On the way in, we listened to other boaters on their quest for moorage here. Prince Rupert has limited dock space, and we figured the dock we stayed at last time would be full. After we filled up with fuel, we motored over to the marina, and surprisingly we found a space, the exact same one we had last time we were here in June. Another sail boater helped us tie up, and told us several 60’ + power boats had tried to squeeze into this space… sometimes it is just better to have a smaller boat! The sun is shinning and it is warm (22 C)…. a good time to open up all the hatches and give the boat a good airing and dry things out. We are going to stay in PR tomorrow and then be on our way to the Queen Charlotte Islands on Wednesday. We are hoping for a favorable wind to get us there!

Kathy, I just can't explain how exciting it is to read all about your trip and see these wonderful pictures. I'm so glad you're having such a good time. Keep sailing and keeping safe. That hot spring looks sooooo good.

Love,
Mom

I again enjoyed your last blogs, the way your telling it, I almost can see it. Prince Charles looks great, he seems healthier looking, guess he also is eating a lot of fresh fish. I think you had the most beautiful holiday, one many of us only can dream of. I am so glad you let me read your blogs. It gives me an entirely different insight of Alaska. Cruise ships do not take the passengers to spots you have been.
I hope you will get some nice sailing wind coming back home. I know you both like that.
Take care.
Rita

Did you know that there is a fine looking red and white haida flag especially designed for boats. It would make a fine and respectful addition to a voyage through the archipelago.

the flags are probably still for sale in old Massett or Skidgeate at the Council of the Haida Nation offices.
