We are finally underway!
Pekka had been working very hard for the past month to get Sarema ready for the Passage. And now she was, ready enough for us to sail from Seward to Kodiak where the work on the boat was to be continued.
We left Seward three days ago and spent the first night in Thumb Cove in order to get our sea legs back. This applied to Latte the Boatdog, in particular, who had turned into a total landlubber after the almost three and a half years she had spent non-stop in Europe.
When leaving Thumb Cove we were escorted by Dall's porpoises which we like to think a good omen for the rest of our ongoing voyage.
We arrived in Kodiak early Monday evening and were warmly welcomed by our good friends Marion and Marty, Kodiak Harbor Master, and Kathy, Vic and Skipper from Capella III.
We have regarded Kodiak as our home port during the two summers, 2007 and 2008 , we have sailed the Alaskan waters. And it was good to be back, albeit for just a few short days after which we'll continue our journey to the Aleutian Islands.
