Sucessful Crossing

We have successfully crossed the Hecate Strait, and are moored at Sandspit in the Queen Charlotte Islands. We pulled up the anchor at first light this morning (4:30 a.m.), and were blessed with mostly clear skies, a calm sea, and enough wind to fill the sails all day. Conditions were especially fortunate, because another storm is forecast - and indeed we already have a nasty, cold wind blowing. We have rented a car, opened a bottle of wine, and plan to ride out this next storm in search of internet
cafes, big totem poles, good coffee, and fresh vegetables. Hooray!
