0720 Farewell to Farewell Harbour. With a light south east at our back we entered Queen Charlotte Straight and set course for Allison Harbour on the mainland side. A deep well protected anchorage it would put us in position to wait for our chance to cross the open water. A group of 7 kayaks crossed behind us heading from Port McNeil to somewhere on the mainland side around Shelter Bay. They looked quite small out there, like a bunch of baby geese all following their mother guide. A good day with tides in our favour again and we dropped the hook in Allison Harbour at 13:10. Alone at first we were eventually joined by two sailboats and one trawler for the evening. We set the crab pots and were rewarded with 7 nice Dungeness for dinner, Alright!! Weather looks like it might work for the morning so time to make everything is secure and wait for the morning forecast.
