It’s a go!! Good reports from West Sea Otter weather buoy, and Egg Island light house so its off across the sound and Cape Caution. I love it when the forecast is right, low west swell and light south east behind us. Tides helping too as we motored into the open water with only a slight roll on the ship. Tides and swell held and we were soon past Cape Caution and heading up Fitz Hugh Sound. Abeam Rivers Inlet and the rest is all down hill. Nicest north bound crossing we could have hoped for. Tonight’s new anchorage is at the mouth of Fish Egg Inlet just north of Rivers Inlet. Narrow entrance but well protected it was the perfect spot to toast our smooth crossing and watch the sunset from the top deck.
