Greetings from the tropical paradise of Prince Rupert,
So our beloved blog has been quiet for one month.We finally decided not to leave Prince Rupert until 2014. We wished we can do it within this year but every time we set to leave there was another delaying problem coming up. Waiting is painful but the focus has not changed. We also can check all the equipment that work set a date to leave or not.
We eventually had the boat ready to go, only to have Canadian and American Bureaucracy defeat our ambitions. Basically an error in Canada and a Banking error in the USA lead us into the American Republican shutdown of the government services which had us stranded in BC. Because of being delayed we had changed our plan to coast hop down the USA West Coast however when Luksana was told that her American visitors visa would take 3 months to complete we gave up.
So we have been forced to eat humble pie and enjoy the few nice fall days that have presented themselves. The North Coast is as beautiful as ever.
