No, we didn't hit any rocks. We're still at the dock in Ketchikan, waiting for 2 new fuel injectors to arrive from Seattle. George also sent 5 to Seattle Injectors, Inc. to be refurbished. With the 3-day week-end, it is taking FOREVER to get our engine parts back. Today we used our time cleaning up the interior, scrubbing the dinghy inside and out, and mending exterior dodger curtains where the zipper stitching had rotted. Without Sue's sewing machine she accomplished this with needle and thread, the old fashioned way.
Sue has been reading an oceanography textbook given to us by Gary. Geologists and astronomers have discovered a lot that she never knew before about the earth and its origins. The attached photo depicts a thin layer of earth crust peeled off during the Pacific plate subduction, rocks staying on the surface and squished together, hence the striped and undulating formations. Reading about this phenomenon she remembered seeing pillow basalt stones piled up along the shore in Foggy Bay. It's so interesting to learn about the places we visit, gazing at the natural wonders surrounding us.
Do take a look at the photo album associated with this blog to see totem poles, long houses, and beautiful scenery surrounding Ketchikan.
