Petersburg: Around the Harbor

June 25-29

This was a rainy stay in town, with time to enjoy some good conversations with old friends and meet new cruisers, visit one of my favorite SE bookstores, and check out the changes in town.

The harbor seemed quiet and empty when the seiners, gillnetters AND crabbers all had openings at the same time. The eagle tree at the top of the south harbor ramp was anything but quiet!

This noisy fellow, a Stellar sea lion, was a frequent noisy visitor. He checked in with each fishing boat as it docked, looking for snacks. He ate well but didn't really need handouts. He did just fine on his own, dining on the local herring and salmon.

Do you think your local electrical inspector would approve this creative 440 volt "fix"?!
