Marilyn Arrives Juneau

30 August 2016 | Douglas Island Uneau
Marilyn arrived on Tuesapday afternoon. Sanand Doug were there at the airport.

For Doug's last night we all ent to Douglas Island for a goodbye dinner. The " city" is about 5 miles from Auke Bay.

Arrived Juneau at midnight

29 August 2016 | Auke Bay Juneau, Alaska
We left Glacier Bay in late morning. The trip from Glacier Bay to Juneau was longer than we wanted it to be and there were adverse Winds in the straight. We motored ducked - making it longer than expected. We arrived at midnight Monday Morning. We docked temporarily at the fuel dock and later moved to a better slip. It is a large marina in Auke Bay.

Denise wanted to fly home to Seattle and she did that Monday in the early morning.

Arrived Glacier Bay

27 August 2016 | Glacier Bay Alaska
Clear about 65 degrees high
We arrived in Glacier Bay from Elfin Cove. We had to get a permit from the National Park Service. We checked in with them when we got there. We anchored overnight and left the next day. Wish we could sty longer but Denise wanted to get to Juneau to fly back to Seattle.

Arrived Elfin Cove

26 August 2016 | Elfin Cove Alsk
We arrived in Elfin Cove before dark. We were able to tie up at the dock. It is a fishermen's resort and " drop dead gorgeous". Phone signal was only available on the top of a hill. People come and go on a float plane.

We would have loved to stay longer but Juneau called. We left after being there just overnight for Glacier Bay - a short sail.

222 nMiles from Elfin Cove

25 August 2016 | At Sea
We left Seward two days ago with added crew member Denise Stanley headed to Glacier Bay / Juneau via Yakatat. On the way we decided to skip Yakatat and go directly to Elfin Bay -- the gateway to the Inside Passage. We encountered winds making it hard to go directly East to Yakatat.

Denise is attending Chef Cordon Bleu school and shred her skills by preparing a " five star" meal.

We are about 222 nMiles from Elfin Bay -- just overnight. This ends the ocean part of the sailing.
