We got off to a great first day of our voyage here in southeast Alaska. Yesterday evening we left the dock in Sitka and spent the night anchored in protected waters, exploring Peril Strait this morning and keeping our eyes out for whales and other wildlife. In the afternoon we got to explore Ushk Bay both on water and on land through kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and walks of all kinds onshore. Even though it was a rainy day we didn’t let that deter us from enjoying our first experience exploring the beauty of this place!
