It was a relatively short run down Johnstone Strait to Port McNeill. The weather continues unsettled with clouds, wind and showers. We arrived in at the Port McNeill shortly after 10 AM and were glad to do so because the winds were forecast to pick up to 20-30 knots this afternoon.
The highlight of today’s leg was having a pod of dolphins surf our bow wake for ten or so minutes. The Robson Bight area in Johnstone Strait where we picked up our friends is famous for orca whale viewing but we drew a blank.
We’ll spend at least two nights here getting some service done on the engine, doing laundry and some provisioning before the next leg up the Central B.C. coast. On our 2007 cruise we also used Port McNeill for these chores and found everything an easy walk from the marina.
