|July 13 -- Oona River. We get a little "free ride" on the tide through Petrel Channel and arrive with plenty of daylight left for a shore expedition. The entrance to Oona River is shoal and a little tricky; boats of our size can only enter or leave on fairly high tides. Once we're in, we'll be staying a while :-) We are met on the dock by a few locals, including Lutz Budde the wharfinger. Everyone is friendly; in a community as small as Oona River (a dozen or so year-round residents), a visiting boat is an event.
