A Wildlife Dry Spell

Water-0207

I was SO looking forward to seeing whales today on our long cruise back to Anacortes. I had a blog post all worked out…I was going to talk about how finding whales in the Salish Sea was easier than finding a herd of tame deer on a tiny little island. (There were photos all over the internet of humpback whales in Haro Strait yesterday!) But alas…no whales for us. 

We had a lovely cruise though from Jones Island around the back side of San Juan Island and then on to Anacortes. (I drove the boat while Kevin worked, mostly.) We got back to our slip, hosed off the boat, and then went to grab dinner at Adrift (so good!) and now we're back at the boat. Tomorrow morning we start Day 1 of a 3-day preparation seminar for our trip up the Inside Passage to Alaska…the trip that starts on May 16! So soon!!!

Here's our whale-less route from today (41 nautical miles):

    Clean before cooking, then you have the 2 halves. Put about 2 inches of water in pot with something in pot to keep crab out of water, turn on the heat with pot covered, till you have steam. Throw in crab halves, 14-16 minuts later, crab are done. Pick and enjoy. This method will get you much more crab in pot, and a lot less fuel to cook the crab. Purists may not agree, but I cannot notice any difference. Dan and Pat, Rogue

    • Thanks Dan and Pat! We’ll definitely try this method! 🙂
