John Livingston: Master Carver and Painter of Northwest Native Art…….. . Sharry and I stopped in Victoria to visit with John Livingston and his wife Maxine Matilpi.  Unfortunately, we missed Maxine because she was at Gilford Island teaching women how to make button blankets, a traditional art form of the coastal people which is her specialty.   John came to dinner on Starr and we talked about our growing friendship over the past 30 or so years. John carved this pole for Sharry and I many years ...

Alert Bay July 16,  Meet Stevie and Stella Beans:  The best Grease Maker and Fisherman on the BC Coast We left Goose Island, north of Queen Charlotte Sound at 0430 to ride an ebb tide down coast, and then caught a flood tide of 3-4 kts pushing us into Queen Charlotte Sound for a 1630 arrival in Alert Bay.  We wanted to get to Alert Bay before Stevie Beans left the next morning to go Prince Rupert to fish for salmon on his 58ft seine boat Ocean Predator.  Stevie is a high chief of the Namgis (AK...

Friday the 13th. 53 18N 129 05W 0500 Sun just starting to come up We departed Prince Rupert yesterday morning and caught the ebb tide to ride south thru Grenville Channel and got big boost, hitting 13kn for a short time. That is a 5kn increase for our steady 8kn Starr. We were passed by Western Towboat’s 130ft Gulf Titan towing a 1x4 (100 x 400ft) barge loaded to the hilt with containers from SE Alaska heading to Seattle. I had a nice chat on the VHF with the Gulf Titan skipper and we talk...

It’s salmon season and the purse seiners are out in full force.  As we cruise down the east coast of Baranof we see the seiners with their nets out, and their sein skiffs noisily pulling in their nets in the process of closing the net into a continuous purse.  The fish tenders are standing by ready to offload the fish as soon as the purse sein skipper gives the order. While in Petersburg, next to where we were moored at the North Harbor Pier, the fish tenders were offloading the salmon at the T...

Red Bluff Bay July 5&6, 2018 56 51N, 134 44W The Land of Plenty We ran down Chatham Strait after exiting Peril Strait with the current giving us a one and one- half knot boost. It is always a thrill to see the hundreds of streams cascading down the steep mountains on the East side of Baranof Island.  The snow is almost all melted off the tops. We pulled into Red Bluff Bay and dropped our 2 shrimp pots just inside the entrance in 350ft of water.  Steve and Kim Oberto on their big trawler Maxim...

Good to hear from you at last.  Had been wondering where in the world you were hiding, but not concerned about your welfare.  I'm thinking that your run up to AK is going to be an adventure.  Mary Ann and I are still skiing in Sun Valley and plan to return to Seattle sometime around the 8th of April for part of the summer, or most of the summer.  We have become so enamored with Sun Valley that we are making it our primary residence.  No noise, no traffic,  nice people and great natural beauty.

We're with you in spirit.  John and Mary Ann
