Pos: 63.6259,-162.5164 Loc: Stuart Island North Bay Acc: Hilleberg Keron 4 tent no paddling today Day two of my unwanted asylum here…but besides boredom I had nothing to suffer.

Pos: 63.1561,-162.8457 Loc: before Point Romanzof Acc: Hilleberg Keron 4 tent no paddling today A full day off is better than two half days, so I decided to stay in today fully, though the afternoon should be calmer than this morning’s nasty wind and rain.
