Day 20 of BC/Alaska adventure miles sailed in BC waters since day 1: 720nm.
Anchored in Lowe inlet overnight. Made a very brief foray ashore in attempt to hike to the upper Verney Falls. However, it wasn't long before our imaginations ran a bit wild after hearing or at least thinking we heard some bears crashing around in the dense rain forest. Being sufficiently scared back into our dinghy we made the rounds in the anchorage and met cruisers Bev & Jerry on m/v 'Silver Star' hailing from Winthrop, WA whom are 20 year veterans of these Northern waters and sailors Kellie and Terry on s/v Noah hailing from Point Roberts, Wa whom will be heading to Mexico this fall roughly on our time table.
Weather forecast for later today is 25-30 knots increasing to 35-40 near midnight. We'll be tucking into well protected Hunt inlet in the early afternoon (54°03.29 N 130°26.35 W) to ride out the blow.
