Whether the Weather

23 May 2022 | Alexander Inlet, BC
George Stonecliffe
We woke to rain beating on the cabin rooftop, windows all fogged up. Yet we were under way within an hour as the rain receded to mist. Clouds hung in the mountains all around us, sometimes reaching all the way down to the water. Winds blew down the canyons and along the
waterways, mostly against us. But we persevered west along Seaforth Channel (yes, towards the sea). Upon entering Milbanke Sound, the waves grew to 6 feet, shoving and bouncing us around so we turned into Perceval Narrows and headed up Finlayson Channel. In more protected
waters, the clouds began to rise and the sun broke through here and there. Pleasant cruising conditions at last.
Around noon we passed Klemto, a First Nation Village nestled behind a very tall mountain. This historic village has been a destination for many cruisers. We passed an interesting red pictograph as we approached, featuring a dugout canoe carrying several people with various styles of
head dresses. The village is famous for their big house with huge native-style figures painted on the front. We passed by, having visited the house on a previous trip. Next stop, the end of Alexander Inlet, a 5-mile long inlet a little further north. Our only companions here were Common
Merganzers fishing at end of day where a tidal stream drained out into our anchorage. Tomorrow we will explore the little stream and lake, and hopefully catch some crab and shrimp.
