Green Island Anchorage
We left Lagoon Cove at dawn along with M/V Jericho, planning to round the corner at Cape Caution and transit Queen Charlotte Sound in reasonable flat water. It had been sunny and windy along the Central Coast for days, with pesky northwesterlies adding chop on top of ocean swells, but the 4 a.m. weather report from Egg Island Lightstation sounded encouraging. Of course the Capt had alternate Plan B (and C and D) if conditions deteriorated, but it turned out to be an easy crossing.

Jericho stopped to fish enroute to Kisameet while we continued on to anchor. The bay was empty when we arrived, so we dropped the hook in our favorite spot behind an island, well-protected from wind and swell but with a view outside to check the conditions outside in Fisher Channel.

Jericho arrived to raft alongside us with an invitation to join them for a fresh halibut dinner. Yum!
