Well, the boating season is over. The weather is turning to fall here (which is like winter in California!). We had the boat pulled out of the water in preps for storing it on blocks for the winter again. We have a bit of work to do getting it ready for winter. But we plan to head back home on Saturday 10/4.... With tons of frozen Salmon of course!
Well, the cruising season is almost over. After leaving the hot metropolis of Vancouver, we couldn't resist making a quick stop at Chemainus where Marcia's favorite pastry shop is (Utopia Bakery). Ok I admit... it's mine too! After piggin out on awsome pastries, we crossed the border back into the States and stopped at Roche Harbor. Then back to the boat's home in Anacortes. Once we were docked, we noted a huge green boat named Atlas! Just like the rockets we used to launch! I think this boat is a little bigger than the rocket though!
Cruising south down Johnstone Strait, we passed a tug pulling 2 floating fishing lodges. This is pretty common up here for fishing lodges to be placed on floats so they can move to where the salmon are and to allow storage for the winter. Customers just need to charter float planes to bring them to the lodge.
Arrived at Port Harvey last night and the owner just happened to mention that we can throw our crab trap out right from the dock. So being Crab-Aholics, we did... And low and behold, when we pulled the trap this morning, we had 5 nice crabs! We be stylin now babee! However, one of the bastards pinched me! Well I just got even with him on the stove!
