Alaska in Flip Flops – Day 7

Day 7

Wow another gorgeous sunny day! Mary slept until 7:20AM and I spotted a bear on the beach so we all jumped into the kayaks and had a near bear experience.

Then paddled over to the waterfall, and back to the boat for breakfast  – I did my ab challenge – ridiculous good morning.

Headed toward Gut Bay but stopped to picked up the shrimp pot – 32 prawns!! and at the entrance to Red Bluff I caught a black bass and a rock fish we kept to use for bait later.

We had a tech break offshore and then to the uncharted territory of Gut Bay – we decided to scout out the whole bay – we found a good spot to anchor and floated while we enjoyed a yummy lunch of left over chicken marbella.

We went back to the entrance to set shrimp pots and take pics and I got to drive the boat!

As we were setting the shrimp pots a sailboat entered the bay so we hurriedly set the pots and rushed back to get the best anchor spot. The sailboat ended up coming in and turning around and leaving!

We got all the kayaks down and put a crab pot on mine we paddled around the lagoon but decided to set it near the boat. We also set the crab ring off the side of the boat. We had to deflate the inflatable as it had sprung a leak 🙁

We scrubbed down the deck as it had fish guts on it from the exploding black bass! Then Dar did her Day 23 ab challenge – it looked so hard – yikes

We enjoyed a wonderful prawn dinner and salad on the back deck – did the dishes and I was finally able to catch up the blog.

Just as we started to relax Mary got the urge to empty the last wee bit of diesel – almost a disaster as she nearly put it in the water tank – yikes – right after that a ton of freezing cold water poured out from the fooler all over my bed AGAIN 🙁 We hung up what we could to dry but it was a bit late as the sun was just disappearing – I changed the duvet to a new one. Then hung out caught up blog – looked at pics and practiced some knots – bowline and truckers hitch – then more laughs as we washed ourselves up a bit and went to bed. WOW another magical day!
