"Inside Passage" (5/14/08)

Little did we know. During the night we caught up with yet another storm, and from midnight on are bobbing and rolling. We awake to the same morass of fog and waves that we've become familiar with. The captain makes an announcement that the winds are blowing at 50-55 knots with gusts to 60-65. This is a direct headwind, which has slowed our cruising speed from 22 knots to 17 knots. Aside from making this day completely dreary, it will delay tomorrow's arrival in Victoria until early evening.

Our "Inside Passage" experience consists of staying inside and reading and napping all day.
