Where to start.

One day we were just cruising along in Northern BC. The next thing I knew we were discussing getting a 5th wheel RV to “cruise” the USA. Before I knew it, Russell was in Texas getting his truck and looking for the perfect 5th wheel for us.

In the meantime, in no particular order, a few of our all time favorites places that are so incredibly beautiful and special to us along with other special sites.


Hole in the Wall, NW side of Prince of Wales Island, AK

Pruth Bay, BC


Frozen in time, Ocean Falls, BC


With spectacular weather, Europa Hot Springs, BC

The incredible wildlife.


Walker Bay, Behm Canal, AK


Stunning Icebergs!


Such a great community, Petersburg, AK!!


Mirror Harbor, west side of Chicagof Island, AK – HOW did Captain Rusty navigate us through those rocks?! A top favorite.


Complete isolation at the deserted gold mine of Klag Bay, AK


Another top 2-3 favorite places, Fords Terror. Going in at LOW tide, just to make it exciting!  That little spot in the middle is Sweet T.


Whale going under Sweet T, it doesn’t get any closer than this!


And, you never get tired of seeing the whales.


Always special, Chatterbox Falls, Princess Louisa Inlet, BC.


Impressive Lamplugh glacier, Glacier Bay, AK


Obrien Bay in the Broughtons, BC

What does getting a 5th wheel mean for Sweet T? More later…..

p.s.  A black and tan coonhound spotted today! 

All is well.






I forgot how much I loved Anacortes until I started walking around.

While Russell is in Texas I’ve been walking all around Anacortes. Enjoy the photo tour with me. p.s. Some of the pics were taken with my phone.


Anacortes has a very picturesque downtown.

Petunias are everywhere here. Being from Texas, due to the heat, we are used to the petunias being LONG gone by August and September  These are impressive!


Mandy is not a fan of this guy that resides outside the bookstore. Something about it just isn’t right in her world.



History here and there, 3-D murals are on the side of many of the buildings downtown.

I arrived at the library early one morning before it opened so decided to walk around to kill time. I ran across this beautiful park just a few block away. One of the prettiest parks I’ve ever been to. The trees are giant and stunning and I found the rock work fascinating.

Causland Memorial Park.



Anacortes has a Farmers Market Saturday mornings. While not up to the Bellingham standards, it’s still a very good market. Standing in line to pay for my carrots I spotted this. I have no idea what it is, but I thought it looked quite comfortable and ladylike.


This is a beautiful glass…uh, tall thing?


Were these giraffes here the last time we were here? I don’t recall seeing them. *note the brown grass, Anacortes needs rain!!


The best time to go past this is when it’s closed. If they have blackberry ice cream I’m in BIG trouble. I hear they pull out after this weekend.


Anacortes has a cool piano program until Labor Day where pianos are scattered about town and at the marina for people to play at will.


Don’t think I’m lonely while Captain Rusty is in Texas. I have these creatures keeping me company.


Standing guard next to Sweet T 


While the slips next to us are empty we seem to have acquired some squatters, aka seals. 


Two best buds doing what they do best….napping.

All is well.



After a night in Echo Bay, Sucia Island, we headed to Bellingham. It would be our first time, by boat, in Bellingham. We did a drive by back in 2015 while we were still in Seattle.

We loved staying in Bellingham. The marina is first rate. The town is lovely. The Farmers Market was one of the best we’ve been to mainly because it was an actual Famers Market with mostly produce! We found good Mexican food while we were downtown.

We found this on the walk back to Sweet T…


Lets zoom in…


Two of Russell’s favorite things….Donuts and Ice Cream right there together!! 

The old courthouse is now a museum.


Mandy and I walked the path around the bay and marina daily which was so nice with the beautiful flowers.



I had to pick a little to smell it. 



Oh how I wanted to sneak up and pick some flowers…but I didn’t. 

Russell had a good time when he went with us.



An actual anchor.

The only negative we had about Bellingham was that there wasn’t a grocery within walking distance. That said, the marina will shuttle you to where you need to go as long as they have personnel available. They dropped us off at the Farmers Market and rather than calling them to retrieve us we opted to make the walk back. Lucky for us all we needed was to restock fresh produce since we had just arrived from Canada and must not bring fresh produce from Canada to the US.

We stayed there a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.  I also noticed here that the pleasure boats were the majority with the fishing boats being the minority the opposite of our stay in Alaska.


Sweet T fitting right in. p.s. We had a super nice neighbor while in Bellingham. 

On to Anacortes though.

And, why do the big guys anchor right in the middle of the channel? My guess would be because they can.


All is well.




Around Cape Caution we went from Pruth Bay. We had a wonderful calm sea with just slight ripples. That’s how you want to round Cape Caution, because as the name implies, it can be nasty.

blog cape caution

Now this is how you go around Cape Caution. A happy crew!

PORT MCNEIL. We’ve been here a couple of times before. I called to see if they had a spot for us…negative. We’re in prime time cruising season people. We anchored in the bay outside of the marina.  Due to ferry traffic, boats in and out of the marina, and local traffic it’s a slightly bumpy anchorage. The next evening after dinner a tugboat pulled up next to us and asked us if we mind moving as he had a log boom to haul out. We could stay and hope he could maneuver around us, or we could move. We moved.

blog log boom

We were anchored right where the tug with the log boom wanted to go. The log boom goes all the way to the right edge of the pic.

PORT HARVEY. A new spot for us and this was actually a pretty spot other than the buildings on shore.

blog port harvey

Well protected pretty bay.

TURN ISLAND. An anchorage we used before…but oh my, how it has changed. Sadly. It’s recently been clear cut, which made it kind of sad.

blog turn island

This was all trees two years ago.

GOWLLAND HARBOUR. Another new spot. We opted for anchoring here rather than staying in a marina in Campbell River. A LOT of log booms along shore but still plenty of room to anchor.  We got to watch one of the little tugs work the booms.

blog gowlland log boom

I missed getting a picture of the guy walking all over the logs as the tug worked the logs.

It felt a little like we were anchoring in the suburbs in Gowlland Harbour with all the houses on shore but it was a nice anchorage. We had a super pretty sunset after a sunny day. Are we back in the land of sun?

blog gowlland harbr

TRIBUNE BAY. To get to Tribune Bay we had to go past Cape Mudge. The last time we  transited Cape Mudge, with the exception of Mandy, there was seasickness all around. I was hoping we didn’t have a repeat. Lucky us, this time CALM seas! Tribune Bay is a HUGE bay. I counted roughly 50 boats anchored and yet, we weren’t crowded. And, took zero pictures. It was one of those arrive late, left early kind of stays.

NEWCASTLE. The Strait of Georgia was mildly choppy with following seas, which got worse right before we turned into Nanaimo Island Passage. As we were turning into Nanaimo Passage we saw several Indian tribal canoes coming out into the choppy seas! Are you kidding? These were not safe seas to be paddling a canoe!

blog canoe

The seas got worse as they came further out. Yes, we heard on the radio one capsized.

blog newcastle plane

A narrow channel…he sees we’re right HERE….right?  QUIZ, who has the right of way? The sea plane or a boat? BOAT!

The previous two times at Newcastle we were able to get on the docks but this time they were full and only a couple of balls (mooring bouys) were still available when we arrived. We grabbed one. By now I’m getting pretty good at grabbing the balls with my fancy Hook and Moor tool. (pat on back)

blog newcastle goose

Hello and welcome to Newcastle Island.

blog newcastle anchorage

As we are leaving, look at all those boats anchored or on mooring buoys!

DODD NARROWS. Was it ever choppy on the way to Dodd Narrows! As we got closer to Dodd Narrows that choppy nonsense stopped. We arrived early and waited to go through, and waited, and waited..we were at the north side. The traffic from the south end kept coming and coming…FINALLY we took our turn through the narrows with calm seas waiting for us on the other side.

MONTAGUE HARBOUR. We visited Montague Harbour in 2015 with Keith and Chris, Nootka Rose, 32GB and enjoyed it. Last time we were on a ball, this time no balls were available so we found a spot to anchor. This was the busiest anchorage we have ever been in. EVER. Montague Harbour was not only full but busy-busy. Boats were constantly coming and going. The wind kicked up to 25 knots one night and Russell turned the radar on to monitor surrounding boats to see if anyone was dragging their anchor toward us.  It makes for an interesting visual of how many boats were there.  There were 24 boats within 1/8th mile – thats’s only 220 yards – and triple that within 1/4 mile.  We have two radars and it is a very useful tool sometimes – especially in the dark and fog.


X marks Sweet T – the (only) clear spot is the channel.

The wind really picked up in the early morning hours and LOTS of boats drug their anchor. Including our neighbors that rafted together with only one anchor out. Funny, they didn’t seem interested in moving and resetting their anchor at a safer distance until they saw me snapping their pic, then they decided to move.

blog montague

Yes, I have the name of your boat…just in case.

We stayed here several days waiting for an opening at one of the marinas in Ganges. While in Montague we met the owners of Sedna, N40; in the evenings took the dinghy in for ice cream; then cruised the anchorage to check out the new arrivals. Montague Harbour is a nice place to be when it’s quiet. When it’s crazy crowded it’s not a nice place to be but it sure is fun to boat and people watch!

All is well.



From Shearwater our next destination was Ocean Falls.

OCEAN FALLS. We loved Ocean Falls and it’s hard to describe the feeling you get while walking around. Once upon a time it was a thriving, vibrant community of 5,000 people, completely dependent on a paper mill in a stunning location. When the paper mill closed the town disappeared, mostly. (Reason not to put all your eggs in one basket)  The state brought in bulldozers to level Ocean Falls but several remaining residents literally blocked the bull dozers from bulldozing the remaining downtown and homes that hadn’t yet been bulldozed. That was more than 35 years ago.

Essentially Ocean Falls is a ghost town with a few residents, a dam that still provides power, and a fish hatchery. We walked through the town and using our imagination we saw how vibrant it must have been “back-in-the-day”. If you looked past the overgrowth you could even see how at one time how beautifully landscaped the little town was.


Shortly after we first arrived Roger and Arlene (fellow Texans) on their Kadey Krogen, Kama Hele Kai. We met them last year while staying in Sidney then again at the Nordhavn Rally. They were the folks that hosted a happy our at the Nordhavn Rally….um, a Nordhavn Happy Hour on a Kadey Krogen. Once again they invited us for happy hour on Kama Hele Kai. Hi Roger! (I know he reads the blog)

The next day Russell and I walked around Ocean Falls.


I found this online. Before the town closed down.


Present day.


Screams 70’s! I suspect the benches came out of the hotel.


I LOVED this house and all its character. I asked Russell if we could buy it. He said no.

After we returned our new sailboat friends on Bannister arrived. I gladly walked around the town, to the dam, and the lake again with Hanna. I think I could walk it again and again.


This still provides power.


The lake providing water for power.

To end our day and stay in Ocean Falls we shared ice cream with Bannister.

EUCOTT BAY. Eucott Bay is a hot spring which we were really looking forward to since we enjoyed all the others so much. It was supposed to be lovely and it really, really is. On the bow going in I thought, “Wow, this place is beautiful, we should stay here a few days.” We even saw a bear right after we arrived! Look, see what I mean?

blog eucott bay 1blog eucott bay

While deploying the anchor there were a few horse flies, (Tammy calls them horse flies, but they’re really deer flies) so glad I had a jacket on! After the anchor was set I went to the cockpit and there were more horse flies in the cockpit than I have EVER seen in my entire life.  Additionally, 30 minutes after we arrived two canoes with 12 people in each canoe arrived setting up camp on the shore. This is NOT looking good.

Did we want to brave the hundreds (seriously, hundreds) of horse flies to get to shore where we could then share the hot spring tub with 24 other ppl? We both voted NO. Instead we watched the folks on shore spray themselves with bug spray and swat the flies. As lovely as Eucott Bay is, the next morning we couldn’t leave fast enough. This was disappointing, but I think spring or late fall would be great time to enjoy Eucott Bay.  p.s. Russell may now hold the record for killing the most horseflies. 

blog leaving eucott bay

Our view leaving Eucott Bay, forever known to us as Horsefly Bay

Working our way backwards, we do that sometimes, we stopped for a photo-op at Sir Alexander Mackenzie rock. He is the Canadian equivalent of Lewis and Clark.  He crossed Canada by land in the late 1700’s, about the time Vancouver was exploring the coast by water.  This is the point he determined he had reached the sea, and he wrote his name and the date on this rock.  The obelisk memorial was added on top of the rock later.

ELCHO HARBOUR. After I took entirely too many photos of the statue we went into Elcho Harbour, another very pretty anchorage but, while considerably less, there were still plenty of horse flies.

blog elcho 2

To pretty to have so many horseflies

blog elcho

Elcho Harbour on Dean Channel

After one night we gave up the fight with the horseflies and opted to head further south to Codville Lagoon. We stopped here on the way north last year and liked it a lot. We had three days here while we sat out rain.

PRUTH BAY. Pulling into Pruth we spotted Bannister already anchored. The bay is small, but not deep, and I believe at one time I counted 14 boats anchored in the bay. Something else we are adjusting to. In Alaska we got used to be having anchorages mostly to ourselves. Now we are in the land of crowded anchorages.

blog anchorage

Pruth Bay is not a beautiful anchorage but there is a super nice marine research center here with seven incredible beaches to walk to.

Such a pretty garden by the research center

We took the dinghy over to Bannister to say hello and mentioned we wanted to walk to the beach on the other side. Hendrik has been a little under the weather so we took Hanna with us to walk to one of the beaches.

A lovely 15 minute walk through the woods and it opens up to this….

All is well.



Making  our way down Frazier Reach on our way to Butedale, we saw this spectacular fall and decided to take a closer look.

blog frazier reach


Russell likes to take pictures of me taking pictures.

We sped by (if you can consider 6.5 knots speeding) Butedale last year on our way to Alaska. Butedale is a deserted cannery community that Russell really wanted to stop and explore.

BUTEDALE. When Captain Rusty first pulled up to the dock at Butedale I asked if he was SURE he wanted to tie up to this dock…it is in serious disrepair. He said yes. Easy for him to say, I have to step off on the dock before he does. But tied up to it we did…and we were met by the caretake of Butedale, Cory and his dog, who, after helping us tie up, gave us the grand tour of what was once a thriving cannery village. Cory is the only person living in Butedale and in three years he’s only been away 2.5 weeks.

We have tied up to worse docks….

Island greeter…napping on the job. It’s hard to find good help these days.

blog tour butedaleblog butedale tour

The good news about Butedale is that it is now privately owned with all the necessary licenses recently in place for major improvements and restorations. Cory shared with us the brochure with all the planned improvements. This is a ideal location for a top notch marina!

After spending a couple of hours in Butedale we left for Khutze Bay, but not before we topped off our water tank with fresh water from the waterfall. Before leaving we asked if there was a charge for our stay, tour, and water. Cory said no charge but if we had a couple of gallons of gas to spare (we did) for his generator he’d gladly take that.

KHUTZE BAY. We had such high hopes for Khutze with plans to stay a few days since we heard that it was spectacular place. It was pretty, not what I would call spectacular though. Captain Rusty spent an HOUR cruising around, checking the depths and the bottom looking for a secure spot to drop our anchor. With the weather deteriorating,  finally he conceded that there were only two good spots to anchor and both of those spots were taken. After a valiant effort we headed back out to Green Spit and spent a rainy, but comfortable, night. So much for Khutze.

blog khutz bay

Khutze – too deep here to anchor.

blog khutz

We could anchor here, except there is a boat right next to us that you can’t see.

WINDY BAY. With a name like Windy Bay you kind of think twice about anchoring there with wind and rain in the forecast when you want to hole up for a few days. Captain Rusty tucked us safely in a spot where we never felt the wind; a pretty bay with more than enough room for the four other boats that came and went while we were there.

blog windy bay

p.s. My anchor ball and I have been getting along well this year even though it still likes to photo bomb my pics

Russell also caught four of these (que the Jaws theme)…and no we didn’t keep them.

blog jaws

I believe they are in the shark family and called “dogfish”.

RESCUE BAY. Rescue Bay on Mathison Channel is a good spot to spend the night before you make your way through Perceval Narrows at slack. It’s not a bad anchorage but not a destination anchorage either. It also wasn’t a pretty day for travel – low clouds and rain the entire way with my “favorite” (sarcasm) – rain at anchor down. It is what it is. You put your big girl rain gear on and get out on the bow. That said, I did wait until the last possible second before I headed out to the bow. Besides Sweet T, we ended up with six other neighbors that night.

rescue bay

We saw this man a few times along the way, rowing. It was a cold rainy night. It was late and we hadn’t put our dinghy in – I SO wanted to take him hot food.

blog rescue bay weather

Misty foggy weather is so beautiful!

After Perceval Narrows we opted to take the narrow Reid Passage avoiding the swells from the Pacific. You must pay close attention to your charts in this passage. I do love the narrow passages though. There’s more to look at than in open water!

blog reid narrows

Keeping a sharp eye out making our way through this narrow pass.

SHEARWATER/BELLA BELLA. This is another stop we didn’t make on our way north last year. In Alaska we sometimes went days without hearing anything on the radio, it was here that we started to notice much more radio chatter and more boat traffic.

Limited provision stops between Port McNeil and Prince Rupert makes Shearwater and Bella Bella an EXTREMELY popular stop. So popular in fact there wasn’t a spot for us in the marina but we could anchor in the bay and they would add us to their waiting list as #8. Obviously reservations would have been helpful. We haven’t figured out how you make reservations when 1) you don’t have cell service for days or weeks prior to arrival and 2) when you don’t know exactly when you will arrive because you don’t follow an exact schedule.

W A I T… that Bannister we see tied up to the dock?? YES! Remember our friends from Craig and Prince Rupert? Russell hailed them on the radio and asked if we could raft up to them. Of course!! Bumpers out! All tied up and while catching up and making dinner plans with Hanna, who walks up? Neil and Lynn from Navigator, KK48! Remember our friends from Seattle! They were close by in a nearby anchorage and had come in for a few things.

blog navigator


First thing the next morning Russell checked on the oil pressure sending unit that he had ordered when we were in Prince Rupert. It had gone kaput while crossing Dixon Entrance.


It should read 55. The oil pressure was fine, what you can’t see in the picture is the gauge is dancing all around. I just happened to catch it at 70ish.

Nope, the part wasn’t in. Okay, we can get a few groceries and fill up with water. Nope, the barge with the groceries hadn’t come. Water? Not a chance with the marina full plus boats rafted. We tried but the water pressure just wasn’t able to make it to Sweet T.

No oil pressure sending unit, no groceries, no water, Hanna and Hendrik wanted to leave for their next stop and since we were tied to the outside of them we needed to move. We saw no reason to stay in the marina; we headed out to the bay to anchor where we would meet up with Navigator for dinner later. Shortly after we set our hook two young boys (9-10) came zipping out in a small skiff to hand off Russell’s oil pressure sending unit. Apparently it was there and was just temporally misplaced. These same young boys had helped us raft up to Bannister. They’re already pros!

Lynn took up knitting over the winter so I couldn’t wait to see what she’s been working on! (p.s. she’s going to be a fabulous knitter!) Russell helped Neil with a washer/dryer project he was working on; our crane hand-held remote decided to stop working, and Neil was able to help us out with that.  We spent a couple days (and one late night) catching up with them which was SO much fun!!


Lynn needs to make Neil a pair of socks so he can get in on the sock fun!

As much fun as it was to catch up with friends, it was time to head out again.

All is well.





How far behind are we in blogging??!! Oh, like two months….ack!

When last we blogged we were leaving Hartley Bay for Weewanie Hot Springs by way of Verney Passage to Devastation Channel. Follow?


Devastation Channel – not a bad view.

Our first attempt at Weewanie Hot Springs was unsuccessful. Contrary to the Douglas book there is only one mooring buoy rather than the reported two. One small boat was on the only buoy and a second larger boat anchored where the other buoy should have been. Captain Rusty circled the small bay looking for a suitable alternative anchorage but there just wasn’t room for a third boat. We  made our way across Devastation Channel to Loretta Island Anchorage with plans to try it again the next day. It wasn’t a beautiful anchorage but served the purpose. The next day we headed back to Weewanie Hot Springs, this time with better luck.

WEEWANIE HOT SPRINGS. About 10-15 minutes out from Weewanie Hot Springs we watched a cruising boat go in and tie to the only mooring buoy. We were sooooo close….however, we were able to anchor in the spot where the second buoy should have been. Success! After the folks on the cruiser finished with the tub at the hot springs we made our way to shore in the kayak and headed to the tub.


See the bathhouse in the lower right?

Weewanie Hot Springs runs about 102º. It has a smaller “tub” for bathing that can be drained afterwards and a larger tub for soaking. And, soak we did. Perfect.

BLOG IMG_6804_1

After our soak we watched four whales travel down Devastation Channel while we spent a quiet night anchored in the small bay.


All tucked in for the night.

KITIMAT. Isn’t that a nice name. Pronounced just like it’s spelled. Kitimat. I really really wanted to like a town with such a nice name. But….there are a few issues with Kitimat and MK Marina.

Kitimat does have in interesting history. It came into existence in the 1950s when Alcan developed a hydroelectric facility to support the aluminum smelting industry. The company built a dam, a 10 mile tunnel, powerhouse, 51 mile transmission line, a deep sea terminal and smelter. Additionally, the company also designed, laid out and assisted with the initial construction of the city. At the time, the combined development was considered the most expensive project ever attempted by private industry. All of this was accomplished in a span of a four years and is well documented in the museum.

The marina itself isn’t bad. But there is nothing near the marina. Seriously nothing. No parks, no trails to hike, and town is roughly 10 miles from the marina. A taxi runs $60 roundtrip, WHOA! We utilized the bus to get to the grocery and museum (a fine museum), working around the very limited bus schedule. The second issue with the marina is the breakwater…or lack thereof. It has breakwaters, we know this because we could see them, but they are truly ineffective. Between the wind channelling down Kitimat Arm and the small fishing boats going in and out at fast speeds it made for a bumpy stay. Would we go back to Kitimat? Probably not. Note I haven’t any pictures because, well there wasn’t much to take pics of.

KITSAWAY ANCHORAGE. The forecast was for a windy couple of days. This is were we chose to wait out the wind and a good choice it was. It was a pretty anchorage and the crabbing was the best we’ve ever had. A very worthwhile stop. p.s. I STILL have crab in my freezer. 


Crab cakes and crab quesadillas!

OWYACUMISH BAY. This is one of the most beautiful bays we have seen. Absolutely spectacular. Gardner Cannel has been one of the more scenic channels we’ve been in and Owyacumish Bay made the trip down this channel worth while.


Just one of the many beautiful views in Gardner Channel

That said, Captain Rusty made several valiant attempts to find Sweet T a suitable anchorage but eventually conceded that there was not a decent place to drop anchor with sufficient swing room. It’s a small deep bay then all of a sudden it’s shallow. He would not have been able to let out any scope whatsoever. The Douglas book we use rarely fails us, but it is 20 years old and over the years the recommended spot was no longer the depth they reported. Oh how we wanted to stay here. For days….


It’s good to have a Plan B though so we headed back to Europa Hot Springs (aka Shearwater Hot Springs) to spend a night or two.

EUROPA HOT SPRINGS. What a great stay we had here! The scenery was lovely, the bath house was nice, and with warm days and brilliant blue skies it was perfect. The temp in this tub runs about 107º; the warmest of the hot springs we visited. This was my favorite hot springs because it was off the beaten path with beautiful views no matter which way we were facing and since we were off the “popular” route we had the bay and hot springs all to ourselves. We made our way to the tub a couple of times for a good soak.



The outside tub for bathing. (and my dry bag)


The “inside” tub for soaking and if you look closely you can see the steam coming off the water.


A view in one direction.


A view in the other direction.

BISHOP BAY HOT SPRINGS. Continuing on with our hot springs tour our next stop was Bishop Bay Hot Springs. We headed out on yet another warm sunny day. We left Gardner Channel for Ursula Channel for Bishop Bay Hot Springs. This is the most “popular” hot springs we visited. The small dock was super crowded with small boats when we first arrived so we waited until early the next morning to visit the tubs. We did luck out and were able to grab an empty mooring  buoy when we arrived. A nice boardwalk that led to a nice tub with an outdoor tub for bathing, inside tub for soaking. This tub ran around 104º.


A good boardwalk all the way from the dinghy dock to the bathhouse.


A nice little bath house.


Yes, we left our name at each tub we visited.

With all these bath houses I’m not sure we’ve ever been this clean while cruising. I’m also not sure what that says about us, but don’t judge us.

All is well.
