Kayaking Update - Sunday evening May 1

The group left yesterday from Valdez. Here are the brief updates from yesterday and today:

April 30: In shoup bay. rainy but calm first day. smooth loading, humpback feeding within 10 yds of us, eagles over dinner. paddling went well! 11 miles, 5 hours or so including breaks. roaming so won't do pictures. not a strong enough signal.

May 1: Via SatPhone: In sawmill bay for night 2. blue skies and good paddling conditions. boats are very full. trying to empty them out by eating lots of our ration. if weather holds tomorrow we are heading around pt freemantle. its gorgeous here. may never return. ok phone off
