When a cruise ship drops anchor what do you do?

Having been on a cruise ship I am very familiar with the great food and especially the fantastic sweets. Today when the Ms Bremen dropped anchor in Elfin Cove and brought their guest ashore, I being the shy person I am sought out the man in charge to request chocolate cake.
It wasn't long before the captain himself brought treats aboard Cape St James. No chocolate cake available but sweets that were fantastic.
Fun surprise to actually receive the goodies but better yet a long visit with a fellow sailor and the captain.
Thanks Roaman!

Across the Gulf!

We are back in Cross Sound, Elfin Cove. Both of us are tired but  ready for some inside sailing.

The gulf was pretty easy on us, some wind, some motoring, some rain, some sunshine and a lot of gray clouds.

Many nights one separate watches we we accompanied by Dahl porpoises, at any time day or night those guys are a welcome treat. We saw numerous Killer whales. I even got a record photo of 7 dorsal fins at once. We saw Fin whales and Humpbacks.

We has a quick two night stay in Prince William sound, then a four or five night stay in Yakutat (it's all a blur now.)

We'll rest a bit in Elfin Cove, do some laundry and head out for some summer fun.
