13 August 2014 | Anders and daughter Ditte at Redoubt Bay

Next Victims! We met Anders, Christina and Ditte (their 16 year old daughter just back from a 19,000 foot climbing trip to the Himalayas) in Hong Kong a couple years ago. They are also friends of Tjasa & Aiden, are originally from Denmark (as are half of Ms Dorothy's genes) and they are in the process of having a DieselDuck sedan built by Seahorse. And now they are in Alaska. Rusty and Rascal never had so much attention! Christina and Ditte apparently were suffering DTs -- doggie tremens -- withdrawl as a result of separation from their doggie at home in Sai Kung and spent much time, cuddling, stroking, cooing at and kissing the Rs, who tolerated this but always with one eye on me, to see my reaction or to say "see, somebody loves me".

Honu and DavidEllis got out of port as soon as we got A,C,D aboard, while there were still vestiges of the gorgeous weather of the past couple days. We got in 4 days 3 nights at 3 different anchorages, saw some animals, took some great photos and had a fun time getting to know each other better. Wade, Anders and I spent many hours chewing over mechanical and electrical plans for the new boat. Then the rain hit and a significant storm forecast, so we went back to Sitka, lucky to get a tie up as everyone, fishing and pleasure boat alike was headed for shelter. More visiting, eating, dog-spoiling, hitting Sitka tourist spots and half of a Star Wars marathon got us to yesterday 12 August, and time for our Danish via Hong Kong guests to depart. Rusty and Rascal are now in mourning.
