We left on the last of an afternoon flood tide which pushed south with us. The same flood tide flowing in from the south end of the Narrows meets in the middle. About halfway down the Narrows, the tidal current was slack, and as the ebb tide began, we benefited from the current push south. After just about 2 hours we dropped our anchor just ooff to the side of the Narrows in a quiet spot.
Halfway down the Narrows is the small, quaint community of Green Rocks, where every home is built on waterfront property.
Before we left today, Pat and Jinx had filled the ship's stores after grocery shopping in Petersburg. We've told all visiting crew to bring along their favorite halibut and salmon recipes and Jinx had a great one: spicy Thai halibut with peas and bamboo shoots! We paired this with a chilled sauvignon blanc. Just amazing!
Tomorrow we move just across Sumner Strait to St. John's anchorage.
