Well, this was our first adventure out this year, 4 days, 3 nights and what amazing weather and sunshine, a real treat.
Does not quite look like boating weather eh! but what the heck, these boats are tough, we will just have to chainsaw out a path in the ice.
Whittier Tunnel, we were the only boat heading through, looks like we get the whole play ground to our selves.
Joined by the "Red Fox" pirate of Prince William Sound himself.
Speaking of pirates, here is my little swabby and pirate in the making... ARGH!
Just the way the ocean always is, flat and calm - well o.k., not always, but it mostly was on this trip.
Pirate sticks (Caribou Sausages) and veggies makes a pirate have energy.
And you thought I was kidding about cutting our way through ice - yikes - I never thought I would be driving into ice.
Fist time my boat has seen dry land, sort of like a new car, you hate to get that first scratch, so I have been anchoring about a mile away and dingying my way in. You want to have a nice beach for doing this though and watch the boat so you do not go dry.
The main event, there is nothing like shore time, especially a good fire and a juicy smore.
A beautiful sunrise at our first anchorage, I would tell you where we are at, but these are secret pirate grounds.
Where are the fish. Caleb said on the way home - "I want to go to the other dock's, these fish are not interested in me"
trying out my new kicker bracket, I have a 5 hp for trolling and it pushed the boat great.
Looking for treasures on the shore, we find all kinds of goodies.
Driving all by him self, he will be able to run a boat well before he is able to drive a car.
Ziegler Cove on the edge of pigot bay - super nice beach and good anchorage, although we got tossed around quite a bit at night with swells coming in.
