Light rain on the boat, welcome to the north coast. Clear skies to the west as we slipped out of our quiet anchorage and made way for Prince Rupert. Past the mouth of the mighty Skeena River, the entrance to Port Edward, by the coal and grain terminals, and finally abeam the new container port and into Prince Rupert Harbour. I don’t know if we have had a nicer trip up the coast, not for weather or for the company. A wonderful chance for us to visit with my Aunt Pat, my Uncle Gerry and his wife my Aunt Betty, and their dear friend Norma. A chance to reminisce, share memories, laugh, and soak in the beauty of our wonderful BC coast line. I know my Dad would have enjoyed the trip and the Company, some how I think he was with us all the way. Our best wishes to our guests and family for joining us and sharing a trip aboard the Thunder up the Inside Passage. We hope to see you all soon.
