5/30 Ice Bergs!

We left Cannery Cove in Pybus Bay early this morning after taking a day off to just relax. The crabbing didn't pan out but the kayaking was good. We went in on low tide and dug clams and mussels for dinner. Were a little concerned about PSP (paralytic shellfish poisoning) so Bill had a bite or two first....then waited a few hours. He didn't die so sauted them up!

It has been absolutley glorious weather for several days. A little foggy early but cleared off to t-shirt weather. Which is good since we still have no heater. Dug out the solar shower bag and had lovely warm showers. Wasnt expecting to use it until we headed south so it was way down deep in the v-birth but worth the unpacking.

Oh and we saw whales today! They were some bit away but always worth the time to ogle. Now we sit at Tracy Arm Cove at the opening of Tracy Arm from Holkam Bay and from the cockpit asIi write this I can see icebergs floating by! We spotted them as we were closing in on the entrance. Not sure at first if we were really seeing them or not. They are beautiful and we suspect they are just the beginning. We even heard one crack and tumble a bit off into the bay. Even the small ones are loud. There is something rather weird in being in your own boat in waters with ice bergs. Like maybe this isn't quite right. (Think Titanic.) But we will be cautious and see how close we can get to Sawyer Glaciers tomorrow. Sometimes the ice is too thick to make it to the glaciers themselves. Will let you know how it goes.
