I admit I have been remiss in visiting here and keeping up with the blog etc.  We have, however, been busy sailing from San Francisco to Hawaii, then volunteering with the TransPac Hosts (Waikiki Yacht Club), then updating our own web site and YouTube Channel.  At the moment, sipping a cold beer behind the Ala Wai fuel dock in Honolulu, watching the outrigger canoe paddlers practice. The boat is ready but I can't help asking myself: "Why would I want to go anywhere else?". The answer is - because we have itchy feet, wanderlust; or maybe we are just plain crazy. We have applied for permission to visit Palmyra and we also want to visit Midway on the way to Alaska next year.

Looking back at my rather infrequent blog posts here I realize I am forever apologising for not posting more frequently.  Here is the update:  We are now in Petersburg, Alaska.  After sailing from Hawaii in July, we arrived in Sitka on August 4th.  After a few days rest we motored down the West Coast of Baranov Island, stopping at Whale Bay and Puffin Bay then around Cape Ommaney to Port Alexander, Port Armstrong, Misty Cove, Red Bluff Bay, Portage Bay and, finally, Petersburg. We shot a lot of video along the way and have begun uploading it to YouTube now that we will be in port for a while.  When the weather breaks in May or June, we plan to continue exploring SE Alaska before heading back to Port Townsend for a much needed re-fit.

Sadly, we lost Bree in Sitka to kidney failure; not surprising in a 16 year old cat but a sad day in any case.  Life goes on.

Bree will be 15 in October.  Still sweet as ever but is VERY displeased when we start the engine.  Its starting to be a problem.
