Port McNeal June 25/26 2010

We left Cordero at 0:600 in an attempt to avoid a NW wind on an incoming tide. We were fine for a while but then we started to really rock and roll and the dinghy did not like it, jerking from side to side ... after about an hour of this strange severe chop which made our boat rock fore and aft... fortunately we have stabilizers and we did not roll much. With Doug in the lead we decided to forge on and the water calmed and we arrived at Port McNeal at 12 noon.
After a nice lunch at the local pub I got a well deserved haircut , Cheryl went shopping and then I hit the local marine store which has an outstanding selection of good stuff.

We fueled up putting on 2000 liters of diesel, got the boat washed by two cuties and got a Garmin chip for the inside passage that I somehow lost for the Seadoo. Cheryl got a cool pair of yellow rubber rain boots that she has lusted for, for years.

Nat served up a wonderful Oyster wrapped in bacon treat before dinner and we turned in early.

Today we head for Bull Harbor to anchor for the night and hopefully get calm waters to cross Cap Caution on Sunday.
