K: Sunny, sunny Nome!!

The climatological data in the US Coastal Pilot says that, on average, there are only 5 sunny days between the start of July and the end of August in Nome (nearly as bad as Manchester). I guess we've been lucky. We've had 3 stunners so far and today is shaping up to be another beauty. Off to explore Teller and make our fortunes panning for gold like good little tourists today.

Our friends from the Amadino are due in from Dutch Harbour today as well. Will be good to catch up with them this evening and see how their trip went they had a lot more headwinds than our run from Dutch. So now there wil  be another mast peeking above the harbour wall in Nome until the ice clears (winds and sun starting to look favourable to start opening the pass at Barrow...)
