Solitude for a Lone Fisherman

Canada was left behind in the still of the night, the ship glides through the Revillagigedo Channel, a cup of coffee warms the belly and hands, eyeing a faraway boat and waiting for the sun to rise over Revillagigedo Island.  Shortly after the channel comes the Tongass Narrows… and Ketchikan, Alaska, here we come!

Backstory:  In 1793, George Vancouver named the island for the viceroy of Mexico, Juan Vicente de Güemes, 2nd Count of Revillagigedo (reh-villa-GIG-ee-doe) because of his well-known sponsorship of exploration.
