Shamrock has rounded the corner

RC just got a voicemail that Shamrock rounded the corner and entered the Straits at about 23:07. Sadly, we didn't get to talk to them, since the phone never rang.

The vagaries of cell phone communications out here at Ogden Point means that, depending on the minute, and were the phone is located inside the RV, we can have 0 bars, 5 bars, service from AT&T (in the US - so that means we are hooking up to Pt. Angeles towers 25 miles away) or Rogers (Canadian service). We never know which, if any service we might get because it is completely unpredictable. When we answer a call, we don't want to move because we might move out of the coverage we were getting and lose the call completely.

Thanks so much for these updates. I've been reading and enjoying the goings on! I am glad to hear the whereabouts of 'our boat'.
