Sorry for the out of date order of postings - the weekend got in the way.

We've anchored in Park's Bay after nicely sailing off San Juan Island and doing all the safety drills. Everyone looked stunning in their immersion suits. Sunset and dinner were A#1. The Australian linguistic lessons have begun. First word of the day: Codswallop. We're off in the morning to glide down the Straits of Juan de Fuca. The next stop will be dependent on weather. Oregon here we come!

We spent an enchanting evening in the quiet protection of Bacchante Bay at the head of Shelter Inlet, northeast of Flores Island. As the sun faded behind the tall cedar and fir covered granite peaks last night, we followed a shallow river up a valley where the sun was still shining.

Day 10 of the Alaska Eagle Victoria to San Juan Island Adventure:

August 10, 2009

Hello Readers,

The BC Alaska Eagle experience reached the trip midpoint today. We got off to an early start and departed Bligh Cove by 8.30am. We hit the Nootka Sound and decided to head for Hot Springs Cove. We arrived at our destination by 6.30pm. This locale has several other boats at anchor in contrast to the seclusion of last night's venue.

After a marvelous breakfast prepared by Captain Karen we began the puzzle of the day putting together the dingy for our shore excursion.  After much discussion on the order the floor boards were to be installed the dingy was assembled and hoisted overboard.  While this was going on crew passed through the buffet to prepare their sandwiches for the quest to find the sea caves on the other side of the island.

As Alaska Eagle approaches the termination of the leg from Honolulu to Victoria (presently approaching Tatoosh Island and the Strait of Juan de

Fuca) it should occur to some that finding these points of destination has not always been easy. For example finding Hawaii from North America wasn't always easy, but the trip in the other direction was always somewhat simpler.
