In the past few days there have been plenty of sightings including an unconfirmed sighting of a rare Fin Whale. Could also have been a Minke Whale which was a confirmed sighting.

Otherwise, lot's of Orca, Harbour Porpoise, Dahl's (Dall's) Porpoise, large groups of Pacific White Sided Dolphins, Bigg's Killer and Humpback Whales are making appearances.

There is a Nav mark on the shore about 150 m NW of my house. Also a Catalina 22 on a mooring bouy 200' NW of my mooring bouy out front.

I mentioned that to my wife and she now has a death grip on the camera.

Where have those sightings been?

I saw a pod of Orcas in Active pass in late April, but nothing since.

Isn't this just a very cool way to travel? Keeping in touch with people on shore and on other boats who are friendly and willing to offer advice on where to go and what to see.


Boaters are their own special kind of friendly and helpful people.

It's also fun to try and figure out where the hell they are headed.

So, has it been all you and your wife hoped for? Perhaps even more?

We have had a great time. This trip exceeded my wife's expectations. She can't wait to come back.

The boat has likewise exceeded our expectations, and they were pretty high to begin with.

Ganges is nice. Lots of looking at galleries and eating ice cream. We may grab dinner at a local place or eat on board. Right now my wife wants to take a nap.

I try to remember to turn the Spot tracking off at night, but then I have to remember to turn it on again.

Tomorrow we need to cross back I to the US. Not sure where, Roche or Friday Harbor. I am thinking about Friday Harbor then anchoring somewhere East of there and then either cross the strait if the weather is good, or cut through deception pass. Slack is around noon on Friday in Deception.

I love that dhays took a pic of koliver's house while koliver was taking a pic of dhays' boat.
How cool was that!
