Apparently there is not much food for the albatrosses out here. I have never experienced a bird trying to eat our fishing lure before. This guy was hungry, and got hooked. Fortunately he was pretty calm about it, and I was able to pull him in and grab him by the beak and unhook him without any fuss. The hook was only sitting in the bone of the hooked part of his upper beak, so he wasn’t even hurt.

For a change we have had fair weather today. Which makes the sunset view from our current anchorage pretty much unbeatable, I would say.

Todays excursion was meant to go to the glacier in Seno Garibaldi. But the ice was too dense, and we were forced to give it up.

Since a lot of other yachts that passed through here left their mark in the bar, of course we couldn’t be any worse. Thanks to Olof we had a spare Swedish flag that we could sign and put up in the bar!


Punishment for slow bowlines…

The Journeyman is a rough environment. Crew members who cannot tie bowlines fast enough gets left behind on the buoy.

Joke joke.

The guy jumped on the buoy to tie on a line, and didn’t notice that the boat moved away while he was busy tying it. This rather amusing event shows the importance of knowing your knots. Had there been more wind it might not have been so amusing.
