Pos: 64.4050,-163.1771 Loc: Rocky Point Acc: Hilleberg Keron 4 tent no paddling today I stuck to my plan to have a recovery day off, as no really bad weather is coming up. Still mostly headwind every day though… I happily slept in until 9 am. As much as I hate more than one day on […]

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.
