The Alaska panhandle towns all are unique and interesting. After Elfin Cove and Glacier Bay we were in Sitka July 18 to 20, Appleton Cove July 20, Lindenburg Harbor, Waterfall Cove, Murder Cove and Halleck Harbor July 21, St Petersburg July 22, Sokolof Island July 23, Wrangell, Anan Bay and Frosty Bay July 24, Gravin Island July 25, Ketchikan and Morse Cove on Duke Island July 26 and then into Prince Rupert, BC on July 27. Sitka and Ketchikan are the bigger towns with charter fishers and cruise boats and float planes coming and going constantly. St. Petersburg and Wrangell are smaller and very nice.

A lot of rain and fog but good fishing and the area is well worth the trip and I hope to go back.

It has been pleasant for us to experience calm seas for traveling and showering and quiet nights at anchor.

It was nice arriving at Prince Rupert, I had been here 10 years ago when brother Dale was commercially fishing Halibut. I remembered some of it.

Customs & Immigration is always a concern even if you think you are legal.

There is a new law every day and ignorance is no excuse, but we got through without forfeiting a crewmember.

We arrived 16:30 at Prince Rupert and set to work repairing and cleanup. We picked up a downrigger and recommended fishing tackle and went out yesterday and caught 5 salmon. We couldn't agree on what kind, but we saved 2 of them. We had fresh salmon at noon for dinner and it was great, but being from the hinterlands and being brought up on beef, buffalo and moose, there was a consensus at supper time to have hamburger.

Chip, Jodie, Ryan, Scott, Mikayla and Trent will be arriving from Grande Prairie tomorrow evening. We are very excited to see them again and disappointed that Alice couldn't come until Vancouver.
