Chris Craft Commander Alyeska

At the Olga Community dock, Orcas Island, WA July 2009.  Moorage is inexpensive though services are limited.   The bay is  unprotected against southerlies otherwise it is well sheltered.  
  

                   

Mike pauses at the sprawling post office at Olga.


 

Alyeska at anchor in Blind Bay, Shaw Island, WA July 2009.  The Shaw Island ferry dock is barely visible in the distance.  Out of site but immediately adjacent to the ferry dock is the Shaw Island General Store.  The general store's
dock is suitable for skiffs and small runabouts.

 

It's up!   It's good!
 

 

 

Scandalon skipper Joel Van Ornum takes time out from a hike to the Turn Point lighthouse to shoot some hoops at the Stuart Island School.  Island residents are trusting souls and always leave a basketball (or 3) lying about near the court.



Labor Day weekend 2009 in the mist at Lime Kiln Lighthouse, San Juan Island, WA.  and not an Orca in sight.


In July, 2009 one of our traveling companions is Scandalon.   Here she's northbound in Swanson Channel for Ganges, Salt Spring Island after clearing Canadian Customs at Bedwell Harbour, South Pender Island, BC.
