I remember Lund.
In 2003 we got some fuel there on our way to Alaska.
I yelled at my to be wife while making a landing in breezy conditions. She was being slow and it looked like the wind was gonna win.
That’s all I remember about Lund.

Frank,
They’re mooving the boats around at the marina (dredging) and I’m in a slip w a Camano Troll .. I think. It seemed small. Went fore and aft and realized the 31 foot Troll is a foot or two smaller than my 30’ Willard. Do they call out their boats pulpit to swim step??

Left Lund after coffee and a breakfast sandwich at Nancys
Passed the eagles on the cross at Dinner Rock, Saw 2 humpbacks at Atrevida Reef marker underway to Powel River. That never gets old..
Had seals feeding around them to ad to the scene.
Going to blow a bit tomorrow so glad to be tucked in at Westview Harbour
Our phones take amazing pictures now. Just wish for more zoom. (Eagle pic)

Had a humpback video but not allowed upload..

Back up to Lund with an early start in near flat seas and full sun.
Lovely fall day, nice evening with memorable sunset.

No
Though it was 17yrs ago and Chris was mad at me and it was just a fuel stop. I have no idea why I was buying fuel at Lund. Well we were running the little Albin then w far less fuel capacity than the Willard. Were probably planing to get more at Shearwater. With the Willard as a stunt we could go from Seattle to Prince Rupert w/o refueling or carrying jerry cans via direct route .. not anchoring and runnung at night to avoid anchoring detours. Went to Juneau (where I was born) and Hhoonah on Icy Strait.

Boating season? There's no such thing as a boating season!!

Thanks for the photos and grand tour

We made the 4 hour run from Kitimat down to Kitsaway Anchorage on the weekend. It's pretty close to the Inside Passage treadmill so usually has boats anchored over night, but this time we had it to ourselves. There was a 50' Nordhavn anchored near the entrance when we came in, but they saw that they were totally outclassed by Badger, so moved along smartly as soon as we showed up

Came upon 2 humpbacks feeding while underway yesterday.
Always a pleasure...

It's been incredible weather for boating the last week. Got out a few times. Humpbacks and Dall's porpoises have been busy out front this fall. Sorry I missed you on the weekend. Had a Halloween party at my house which consumed way too much time in preparation.

Agreed!
The weather has been awesome!
After the whales, spent a night a Gorge.
Then off to Octopus Islands though Beazley Pass.
Did the trail at the end of Wiatt Bay before anchoring for the night.
After a longer hike, sure is nice to see both the boat and dingy waiting for ya 😄
Simply beautiful!

Next was onto Johnstone Strait and up Nodales Channel.
Had Dahl’s Porpoises swim along twice underway to a stop at Shoal Bay.
From there I timed Dent rapids for an easy pass at slack and checked out the Sea Lion colony on Jimmy Judd island on the way to the docks at Big Bay, Stuart Island. Fun to watch the waters build from there...
The forest trails are so different from home back east..

Heriot Bay was a standout for us as well when we paddle through. There's something about being in a little town on an island off an island. We've always said that if Kitimat gets too squirrelly in an industrial sense, Heriot Bay or Cortes will be worth a look.
