Airship Goes to Alaska 2016
This morning we woke up early, made some coffee, and sat out on the bow watching bears. We decided we’d take a dinghy ride further around to the end of Walker Cove before pulling the crab traps this morning. It was early and quiet and the water was glassy still. (So nice to have the electric Torqeedo for these kinds of quiet expeditions, instead of the loud gasoline outboard!)
There are a couple of decent spots to anchor further into the cove, and I think we may try one of them next time. Bears on the beach, waterfalls and snow-capped mountains around you…it’s like a different world in here.
Little (not really) bear ears:
Kevin dropped me at the boat (after a two-hour cruise) and I started breakfast while he checked the traps. Two more Dungeness. We’re going to stay in here another night, so he reset the traps (with a little more raw bacon…it’s our secret crab-getting bait).
Here we are, from the dinghy:
After breakfast Kevin took the drone up and I shot some photos of our anchorage:
There are four bears in this picture:
The sun came out for a bit and we decided to get the kayak out and go for a paddle. First, we headed over to the river (there are two bears in this photo):
And then, we saw more bears. The sow and her one cub were eating grass on the shore, so we stopped to watch them for a bit:
Kayak. Grizzly bears.
Back to Airship:
Dinner tonight was crab enchiladas. Yes, again. Hush. 🙂
