As you can see from the picture, things are pretty busy around the dock with all the boats coming and going as well as float planes. The fog lifted after we got out away from the shore and the sky started to clear off. We got some sailing in for most of the day, zigging and zagging our way along the coast, with both sails up in 15 to 18 knots of wind.

We anchor in this relatively quiet bay with 4 fishing boats. They are getting ready to start their season on July 1st. They are after king salmon and the season will only last about 8 to 10 days, depending on how many are caught.
