Under Pressure

October 16th More and more frequently when we wake in the morning we experience sinus pressure, sometimes stuffy noises, and sometimes even a small headache. We didn’t think anything of it and would continue about our day. During a discussion with one of the lovely St. Paul Marina office ladies, […]

Another Month

Yes the wind is increasing, the temperature is dropping, and the rainy to sunny day ratio is 3 to 1, respectively. Today is a misty day but the weather forecast looks good, so we are off to cruise around Kodiak another month. Marj had a safe flight home and we […]

Short Stop In Kodiak City

We post updates to our WordPress website and Facebook using a Jetpack plugin Post-By-Email feature. Yesterday as we arrived in Kodiak City we realized the plugin magically disconnected, so none of our post were reaching our website. Our apologies for flooding post from the last week. While in Seal Bay […]

Sara’s First Hunt

Bluefox Bay turned out to be a disappointment in regards to fish and deer. We found two signs that said no fishing on the opposite sides of our anchorage. We can only assume the no fishing signs were to protect the abundant amount of otters and seals in the bay. […]

We Found Bears

If you are visiting Alaska and you want to see bears we highly recommend you take a plane or boat to Geographic Harbor. Our first day searching for bears was very rainy. Marj and Sara gave up and Wade went ahead to scout out for bears in the area. He […]

Searching For Bears

Today we crossed the 60 mile channel from Kodiak Island to the Alaska Peninsula and anchored in Geographic Harbor. This location is reputably “THE” place to go for viewing Alaskan Brown Bears and one of the most photographed spots in Alaska. Not only are there many bears, but people watch […]

St. Paul Marina Kodiak to Litnik Afognak Island

We finally left St. Paul Harbor for Geographic Harbor today. To break up the trip we stopped for the night at an abandoned town on Afognak Island called Litnik. As we pulled in the bay we spotted several otters, harbor seals, and jelly fish. We really wanted to go fishing […]

Hanging Around Kodiak

We arrived at St. Paul Marina Kodiak Island just in time to miss the heavy winds. The following day we searched the town on foot in the pouring rain for a new water pump for our reverse air conditioning (boat heater) to no avail, so we have a new pump […]

Hello Bear

Around 8 am two days ago we realized we had 33 miles to Three Saints Bay and 99 miles to Kodiak City and we would not make Kodiak City during daylight. We did not want to spend a third night sailing, so we decided to stop and anchor. Navigating through […]

Lower Lows

Another Low is approaching, but this one is the strongest we have seen thus far in Alaska. It will be 3 to 4 days before it possibly reaches us, but the winds show to definitely be in the 50 knot range when it does. Not knowing how long it might […]

Spooky Low Pressure System Sailing

We have a relatively good weather situation so this afternoon we left Sand Point. It is however a little spooky because we are inside a strong low pressure system. Not that we are in anything like a hurricane, but similar to being in the eye of a hurricane, we are […]

Sea Of Islands

Yesterday we motored 66 miles from Dolgoi Harbor to Humboldt Harbor, where we will wait out another low pressure weather system southeast of us. Joyfully the sun was intense, which when combined with no wind and glassy seas meant the temperature felt warm. The day was nice to motor through […]
