Ship's Log:
Well we have arrived safely in Port Hardy and now once again have a signal to send the log with. To recap the last two days: from Blunder harbour we sailed most of our way, beating against a fresh northwest breeze to Allison Harbour, a long narrow inlet, just to the east of Schooner Passage. At the head of Allison Harbour we hiked a rainforest trail to a beautiful freshwater lake. On day 9 we took advantage of calm and sun to explore Burnett Bay. Once ashore we were retreated to a beautiful sandy beach. After lunch ashore and a rousing game of sticks we doried back to the Grace feeling a slight westerly swell, unfamiliar to the rest of the inside passage. From Burnett Bay we travelled to Port Alexander, where we spent our last night in solitude. We enjoyed a wonderful talent show put on by all hands and a final hearty round of singing. We had a peaceful last morning, with the trainees spending their last hours in fun, conversation, and trading email addresses. It was great to witness the reuinion of trainees with family. God Bless.
