Two thousand five hundred and ninety-seven nautical miles so far
Made it to Sitka. A welcome and familiar town. We were relieved to see they still allow liberals here... !
But also important for boaters - they have a Coast Guard training base, too. This bouy tender was parked and the crew joined the 4th of July Parade.
In the docks, we have been shopping for our second boat. We figure something along the lines of Sequoia here. A stout and handsome wooden troller. Though Blain has told Monique several times that she can divorce him immediately (and really should) if he ever buys an old wooden boat.Though Blain was looking through his viewfinder at a group of costumed people marching by, and not really paying attention and yelled out, "Yay Park Service!", and got immediate feedback that they were, in fact, the Forest Service. Ooops how embarassing.
