Our dear friends, the O'Family as we call them (self admitted 'Recovering Irish Catholics') honored us by spending their vacation time onboard!...
We went fishing, caught halibut that was too small, and we threw it back in, caught sole that was too small, and we threw it back in, and set crab pots which caught crab that were too small, and had to be thrown back in. Do you see a pattern here?
|Fishing is a stylish occasion.|

The next stop is LeConte glacier, by way of Petersburg. Apparently the pizza parlor in Petersburg has a reputation for great pizza, so we had a discussion as to what kind. We called when we got within cell phone range, and ordered 2 larges to go. Just a "touch and go" at the harbor, as we tie up the boat and walk a couple of blocks to pick up the pizza. Since we hadn't caught any fish we could eat, we also stopped at the local fish processor retail outlet, and bought a halibut. The guys gave Colleen and I a hard time about that, but it was delicious, and they agreed. The pizza was worth the stop also.
|We finally caught the appropriate sized halibut.|
|Beautiful day in LeConte Bay at the glacier.|
|The O'Daughters were enthralled with the scenery... [actually, this was one of those brief moments when a cell signal was available...]|
|Colleen enjoying her evening.|
|The lower dinette area folds down into a bed, the O'daughters snuggled in, playing cards.|
|Rory is a champion griller.|
|Where are we going?|
|It's an O pile, checking out who still had data available on their phone.|
|"Come on in"|
|Colleen at the wheel.|
By the time we returned to Wrangell, our O'Friends were seasoned cruisers, well trained Swabs, Galley Slaves, and Ship's Mates. "Aye Aye Captain, anchors away!"
