Peak to Peak Charter School – Day 2
Trip Day: Day 2
Location: Spencer Spit, Lopez Is.
Name(s): Peak to Peak
Thunderstorms rolled through the island region last night as the students were thinking of sleep, so they got a sense for the dynamic nature of the weather in the Pacific Northwest. This morning greeted them to gentle overcast and a calm breeze.
By 9:00am they had finished breakfast, taken down their tents and were loading the boat to get the day started on the water. Staying at Spencer Spit entails a bit more logistics when unloading and loading the boat. The S/V Carlyn anchors a distance offshore and the strong-armed logistics coordinator rows gear across the expanse of water.
Wind Watch started the day with an early morning Zodiac ride from the beach to the S/V Carlyn.
They were still working their morning navigation plan and trying to determine if they would get to Sucia Island or Stuart Island for the night … tough choices.
Word has it that by mid-afternoon the boat was just north of Sucia Island … and they saw whales!! Humpback and Orcas. How much good juju is that! but we’ll wait for the pictures 🙂 Although it should make the Afternoon Report interesting.
There were lots of science and sailing today to go with the many photos that were sent.
