Most of us awake between 6:30 and 7:30, dress, and then gather up on the fantail for coffee and tea, preparatory to enjoying another delicious breakfast created by the always-smiling Cate. On this morning’s menu: plenty of handmade cinnamon oatmeal with pieces of fresh fruit, complemented by yogurt, fresh slices of orange, and chipotle egg tortillas served with guacamole.
By the time breakfast was served, Passing Cloud was already motoring along at seven knots, bound for Anthony Island and the former village of Ninstints, better known asSGang Gwaay(skung-why). In order to get there in decent time, a morning of scenic cruising was in order; a necessity that no one objected to.
Just prior to reaching SGang Gwaay, Captain Russ turned off Passing Cloud’s Volvo Penta engine and raised her sails with the help of Kai and Joel.
