Different rock formations around every bend
Our anchorage at the Bustards
The Looper Train pulled anchor a little before 9:00. We took the inside passage which was calm, but unnerving with hairpin turns required in extremely tight areas with boulders on each side. When they got the chance, Bade Boomer went outside. They found high winds and 3-foot waves. Trawlers Jeremiah and Seamoore decided to anchor on the inside rather than roll in the waves.
Dream Catcher continued through Hangdog Narrows, through the open water, and caught up with Bade Boomer at Rogers Island. It turned out to not be a good anchorage, so we continued to Strawberry Island in the Bustards. We found a great anchorage, tied bow to stern, and enjoyed the evening.
