0810 and we depart for Prince Rupert. No weather reception at the head of the inlet so we will wait to get to the outside. Turns out to be a following south east and good tides again as we set course for our summer home. A great day as we motor past the towering cranes of the new container port and enter Rupert Harbour. The cell phone rings, we are back in civilisation, it’s a call from our friend Jack he has seen us from his window and wants to be the first to welcome us back. Nice!! 1330 and we are on the dock at the Prince Rupert Yacht Club. A great trip and we look forward to catching up with all our friends in Rupert over the next few days. We have to fly down to Vancouver and drive our car north on Sunday and then we will have a few days to get ready for our first charter on the 25th of May. Can’t wait. Standby for the first picture of a big chimook salmon!!
