Back in Canada... checking in at Prince Rupert.

Wednesday Aug 6
The last few days in Alaska were absolutely beautiful. We had sunny hot weather, so nice in fact we decided we would go for a swim! Very refreshing!
Of all the on shore walks we took in Alaska, we found very little garbage, unlike our last trip in 2007. Maybe people are cleaning up the beaches as they go there and hopefully everyone is getting the message that you just can't throw this stuff out in the water. All the news about the Japanese tsunami probably helped to open peoples eyes to the problem.

A fish net hooked onto an old barge on Tongass Island.

Warm Beach Bay, the water was a pleasant 17 degrees! This spot is just inside the Alaskan border.

We will be leaving Prince Rupert either today or tomorrow, but unfortunately the forecast is for wind from the SE, blowing 20-30 knots. If that pans out, we will wait somewhere until it is over, could be a few days. 

These are some interesting fossils we picked up on a beach. Anyone know what they are from?

Just hanging out!

Our next contact will be when we get to Port McNeil. That might be 10 days or so, depending on the weather.

I have no idea what those objects are!

Are you sure they are fossils? Maybe native artifacts? Where did you find them?

You could have a biologist look at them when you get back to identify.
