Oh yes even Starbucks.

Housing prices in Juneau have been very high for decades because of all the government activity there. And there’s limited suitable ground as well.

But now that the oil royalties have been vastly reduced the government jobs have fallen so real-estate prices have mostly normalized. Think I’d rather be in Sitka now that I’m old though. Juneau is mostly for young people. Would be fitting for me to go back as I started out there.

Currently docked in Cambell River for fuel and provisions. A knock on the hull turned out to be Conrad off Big Blue, a Nordic Tug 42 docked a few fingers south of me. Nice chat in the relatively warm air of this evening. I’m sure we will have a rum at some point before haul out time for Emma B. Off to Lund tomorrow.

Easy trip across the Strait in virtually flat calm seas.
Lucked upon 2 humpbacks just before Lund..
Always a treat to watch

Lund, then Powel River... calm seas!
It’s getting late in the season and up until about 3pm today I wasn’t sure if I’d chance trying to make the Broughtons this year. Fall weather is fluky at best..
Forecast shows Johnstone Strait ok Sunday morning so I made the call and I’m off. Copeland islands tonight. Octopus islands tomorrow, Douglas Bay, just after Whirlpool Rapids Saturday and if all goes well... Lagoon Cove Sunday!
Pic is Copeland Islands from anchor tonight.

Given a choice, sun shine is better but you canít deny the mystical beauty out here on overcast days as well.
Left the Copelandís to head to Octopus Islands. Major Islet, big bald rock just outside had both a seal colony at one spot and a sea lion colony at another. Fishimust be good there.

Was blessed with a calm passage across the strait to Hoskyn’s Channel. With a SE on the beam, this could have been uncomfortable to not doable.
Even a grey day was pretty turning up the channel, then into Beazley Pass, which was timed right to just catch the beginnings of the ebb my way
That’s Beazley beyond my bow rail

That’s where we like to go in the winter in the car.
We stay at the sizable motel near the top of the hill.
This time of year you could make a nice little side trip over to Solintula.

Crossed the lower end of blackfish Sound and up to Port McNeil for fuel and provisions (the wine was getting low)
First time at a dock in a week.
Check the anchor....couldnít see it from the helm.
Proof Emma B isnít a dock Queen

Looks like you tried to anchor in Port McNeil. As I recall it’s quite shallow w lots of grass like that.
