Day 53/ August 22nd – Bishop Bay to Khutze Inlet

We couldn’t resist the morning soak. So we packed our coffees in and had one more. So good.

Whispy fog heading out of Bishop Bay and down Ursula Channel made for waves of good visibility. Dropped by Butedale for a quick boo and headed on to Khutze Inlet. Stopped briefly for some whales in the fog. We’re getting into the challenging anchorages now. We could have put down at Green Spit at the mouth of the inlet, but we wanted to have the chance of waking up to a view of grizzlies in the estuary and so we attempted it. Fail. When we weren’t dodging sand bars and shallow water, we had 100 ft under the keel. Ended up heading over to the water fall on the east side of the bay and Scott was up all night resetting/monitoring the dragging bow anchor. Kim tends to sleep through these things.
