Sailing homeward down Johnstone Strait

Thursday August 30, 2012
We left our anchorage at Port Neville this morning and are heading homeward through Johnstone Strait. Passed a small pod of orca just a few minutes ago, it is a beautiful day but kind of fickly winds.
 More of the junk we find. This one we left behind.
This trip has been fantastic. For the most part, we had good weather. The rain, when it did come, didn't last for long. Most of where we went, we hadn't been before. We did lots of exploring on beaches and through trails when we could find them.
Sunset in Tate  Cove, Aristazabal Island
We didn't see a lot of other boats out on the water except around fishing resorts. Most of the time we had anchorages all to ourselves, but sometimes a bear would show up. 
Once we get home, I will post a link to our web album and hopefully a chart (if I can figure out how to do it) of our journey.

Sounds like a great trip! Roma and I want to explore Aristazabal Island so I am looking forward to what you saw there. BTW what are 'fickly' winds?
