Meyers Chuck

I know, I'm way behind posting.  Like 6 months behind.  No excuses.  That's just the way it is.

June 26, Meyers Chuck, AK

Our next stop was Meyers Chuck, not far from our last anchorage in Port Stewart.  En-route, we were treated to a nice visit and show by a pod of about 6 orcas.  We found ourselves paralleling them for a while, and one large male (identifiable by the long, straight dorsal fin) kept himself between us and the rest of the pod.  Then, he came right over and cut across our bow to check us out, then returned to the pod.

Later that day we pulled into Meyers Chuck.  Any chance you are wondering what a "Chuck" is?  We were, so we looked it up.  It's a bay or cove that has two entrances at high tide, and only one at low tide.  In other words, one of the passes is dry at low tide.  You learn something new every day.

Meyers Chuck is an interesting little community, with emphasis on "little".  I'd guess 25 people or so, but that's just a guess.

That evening we were treated to a very nice sunset.  This is the pass that dries at low tide.

Good to have you back blogging again, PH. You were missed.

Thanks. I've still got LOTS of catching up to do, but at least now there is movement. It's a good think I'm a volunteer. Otherwise I'd have to fire myself :-)
