Having completed all the must do tasks on Novara we decided to leave as planned on Friday although we would have loved to stay longer and explore the island both on shore and from the sea.
As with our first night here in late September we once again headed over to the the brewery to meet up with our pilot friends, Pete, Ben, Joe. Followed by a second visit to a great Sushi restaurant for dinner. The following morning Pete and Erik came over to say goodbye and brought around 8kg of Halibut and a similar weight in Red Salmon as a farewell present.
Phil and Terje had found their way to the B&B Bar, the oldest in Alaska, smokey hole that only served bottled beer and spirits. Before we cast off they wanted a photo taken in front of the bar presumably to remind them of drunken nights spent there!
