Beach boat camping

We both got out of work early on Friday because it was beautiful outside!  We tried to go out the road and get on the Lynn Canal, but the north winds were whipping, so we came back to Douglas to do some fishing and camping.  We did catch some Dolly Varden around the boat launch at Amalga Harbor.

High tide came about two hours later, so we had to anchor a ways out in order to keep from going dry at 4:30am. The tide swing was not huge for the area, but still 15 feet is enough to make you think.

 Good morning!  Pancakes and homefries

Holy shrimp

No Kings today.  Certainly no lack of trying.  People are starting to get amped for their arrival.  People are starting to troll all over the place.  A great start to the weekend!
