Pacific Northern Academy – Day 2
Trip Day: Day 2
Location: Echo Bay, Sucia Island
Name(s): Lilly and student crew
It was a fabulous sunrise to begin the second day of the journey amongst the San Juan Islands. Wind Watch spent the night ashore and wrapped up breakfast and some time of solace before shuttling back to the S/V Carlyn. Water Watch emerged to the morning from the fo’c’sle and set about organizing the boat to start the day.
The crew eventually made the long journey from Pelican Beach on Cyprus Island to Echo Bay on Sucia Island. The student crew chronicled the day in their Afternoon Report.
The Afternoon Report was contributed by Lillian, Iris, Aven, Maggie, Joaquin, Keno, and Tully.

One highlight from today is when we went to deploy our science gear. Keno and Tully tied the line on backwards and had to tie it over again.

The weather was so nice today that we hope is will be the same, but with a little less wind because it was a little chilly.
