Fifth transit of the Pacific begins

Day 2 Monday, Sept 7, 2020 48.32 N, 125.03 W @ 0:545

A clear sky is blushing on the eastern edge. The moon is bright overhead and a few stars remain on stage. It’s cool but no fog, not like last night when it enveloped us for many hours with its cool mist. I’ve heard whales in the distance along with the breaking shore and the haunting call of a loon. Vancouver Island is a black silhouette against a light blue early morning sky.

We are motoring slowly over 2 m swells from the Pacific. The lights of freighters are going back and forth on their highway. We were becalmed for several hours and I slept below as we wallowed. A promising breeze is coming up behind us. With any luck we will clear Cape Flattery.

This afternoon starts my fifth transit of the Pacific. I am warm and dry. A cup of tea will be brewing shortly. 
Cheers, G
