Alaska at last!
Well, we could have rowed the dinghy with one oar here faster, but we finally made the last frontier.
Crossing the border was quickly celebrated by a 2008 Alaskan Smoked Porter bought in Washington. A very tastey way to come into the country.
We anchored for a night in crowded Foggy Bay, the first protected spot from the Canadian border to Ketchikan, and where everybody stops, it seams. The bay filled up in the evening, and emptied at 06:30. We had a glorious 30 mile sail on a run all the way through the narrows and nearly up to the dock. We gybed once - the wind was so steady. It is amazing how good that feels.
