July 25, 2014: Dawsons Landing

Ron spotted two blows ahead when we were heading down Kwakshua Channel out of Pruth Bay this morning. He slowed down and kept watch, but when we saw them again the whales were far behind us. They must have been doing long dives and we went right past without seeing them. It was flat calm when we got out onto Fitz Hugh Channel but it was so grey and misty that even if there were whales around we probably wouldn’t have noticed the blows. I stood in the cockpit in the rain in my wet gear when we ran up Darby Channel and watched the shores slide by on either side. There is much less grey in the forest here—not as many standing dead trees. When we got into Dawsons Landing, White Raven was there getting fuel, and about six boats were tied up. We had a quick chat with Bonnie and Doug before they headed off to Fury Cove to be set up to round Cape Caution when the winds go light. We bought some groceries and used the showers and spent a quiet evening at the dock.
