Kalinin Bay to Sitka

We left Kalinin Bay for Sitka to get our supplies replenished and pass our 40 pounds of Salmon Filets to Big Blue, a company that will smoke the fish and ship it to us when we get home.

Our long time friend Jim Passage came to Sitka to get more Salmon and we did get him five or six more fish for him to take home. The Kings had moved on but we still got one or two Kings and some nice Silvers. Sunday Jim, Cheryl and I went on a two hour tour of Sitka and visited a cultural center and some nice Totem Poles and learned a lot about the history of Sitka.

Last night we went to a wine tasting dinner at a local hotel with the Gill's, Oberto's and Bonnie and Ron who are new friends of the Gill's. The dinner was nice and we got an interesting presentation from the wine maker, from Robert Strong winery.

They produce and sell about 12 million bottles a year. Today we will go back to Kalinin Bay for the third and last time to see if we can get some bottom fish and a salmon or two then begin out journey back south. Our goal is to be in Wrangle for the 4th of July and be in the Broughtons late July
