It is starting to get dark now about 10:00 p.m., I woke up at 4am and the Northern Lights were covering the skies, I woke up the crew and we enjoyed the show for about a 1/2 hour before we went back to gentle sleeping on the big water bed.

Audrey Cove in Drier Bay right in front of the old cannery.

We had fun exploring the cannery - Mark found some bricks that were in the Boiler that were stamped with the words "Troy Idaho" with "White" underneath it. Pretty small world considering I moved up here from Troy Idaho.

Our boats anchored in front of the Cannery area. It was fun to imagine what it must have been like back then in the heyday.

I kayaked around in the dark a while and this was the shot of the boats off in the distance. Sort of weird to be kayaking in the dark, but yet mystical and fun.

We found a nice bunch of rocks out in Knight Island Passage that were teeming with rock fish and other species, we got enough for a nice dinner and some for the freezer.

Cruising back in, the seas were mostly good. Miss Charity is looking good on step.
