Sticky Buns!!

Anchored out in Meyer's Chuck, Alaska, a wonderfully quaint scenic rockbound community of little houses clinging tenaciously to a very irregular substrate, but to quote Gertrude Stein: "there's no there, there." I.e., no shoreside stuff for the visiting yachties, such as cafes, grocers, galleries full of Chinese-made Alaska memorabilia, etc.

But on with our story: 0715, rubbing sleep from eyes, initiating coffee process, and I hear a rap on the hull and a "yoo-hoo!" Alongside is an aluminum skiff occupied by a very nice lady with a picnic basket full of cinnamon rolls for the modest price of $3.50 each.

While fumbling for my wallet, I ask her how many people decline her offer. "Nearly none." I was probably going to spend another night here...but now it's a certainty.

Did I mention they were warm? ...with walnuts?

Hey! Murray. I've been looking for you. I spent the night in Baranof a couple weeks ago across the dock from a Kitimat-ite (Kitimatian?) named, Derek Collier. Know him? Seemed like a nice guy...of course,he's Canadian

Only know he's a fireman, but never met him. Good to hear he's keeping the 'nice Canadian' facade up

The “nice Canadian” ploy has been revealed to be a diabolical plot to lull the US into thinking that our northern neighbor is benign and friendly. Good thing we discovered that Canada is a huge security threat to the US!

We are on to you schemes now Murray!

Your efforts are futile.

Famous comedians were our first infiltrating/invasion force..sworn to secrecy on the next!

Poutine! What the heck are “Cheese Curds”?

I heard about a cruising couple that got a pizza oven for their boat and sold pizza in what ever anchorage that landed in.

One of the first Nordic Tug 32s built was owned by the Domino's Franchise owner in Alaska and had a pizza oven installed to deliver pizza from Ketchikan to Hoonah. Name of the boat? Pizza Tug O!

Man!! Warm stickey buns in the morning! I’d probably have ate them till I was sick. Wild Alaska morning, cool and picturesque anchorage, coffee & stickey buns, does it get better! That lady knew what she was doing.

Not really. She was selling $20 cinnamon rolls for $3.50. Hope she comes back tomorrow.

Several anchorages here get morning visits from coffee boats selling espresso coffee, pastries,and newspapers. Nice way to start the day unless you brought your own.

The few who dont buy maybe diabetics. I had to stop eating high sugar content foods like that since my diagnosis. there is a lot of evidence that type diet makes people sick with diabetes which is like an ever increasing plague getting worse everywhere.

Nice!

I remember the first time that happened to us in the Bahamas. We were tied up in Oyster Bay Marina andd a lady knocked on the side of the boat. She was selling warm Bahamian bread!

Groan. That joke only works when you read it. If you heard it, it just wouldn’t work.

Love Meyer's Chuck. Those bun will keep you anchored for a few days. Explore the trail and under no circumstance do you anchor in the runway or that nice lady will come out and scream at you.....

Wifey B: I saw the title and got worried and since I'm wearing a bikini felt the need to check but no sticky buns here. They're avoided by using a towel in your seat. Even nudist places require them.
