No Room At The Inn
18 July 2022 | Kumealon Inlet, BC, Canada
After refueling in Prince Rupert, we made one last call to the Prince Rupert Rowing and Yacht Club for a spot at the dock. But all room was taken up by boat reservations. So without re-provisioning or laundering we headed away from Prince Rupert, heading toward Grenville Channel. We
anchored in Kumealon Inlet which was the first inlet off Grenville Channel where we were able to anchor in a quiet cove away from 20 knot winds outside the Inlet. A Canadian Coast Guard ship was also anchored in this Inlet for the night. We put down our crab pot, but were unsuccessful.
Then we took a ride in our dinghy to an outlet of a Lagoon that emptied into the Inlet. But we were hesitant to go in due to tidal rapids (at high tide) cascading down into the Lagoon. We quickly realized that as the tide ebbed, the cascade would turn into a waterfall. So we decided instead
to stop before the Lagoon and listen to the songs of several different little birds in the trees on the water's edge. It's always fun to explore the surroundings of the places we anchor!
