Day 70, July 19: Sakhalinsk to Petropavlovsk, Russia. (765 NM)

We had a reasonable wake-up and departure today with a 10:40 am take-off in our TBM. Moved clocks forward 3 hours as we made one of our long over water crossings (over the Sea of Okhotsk).

Fueled and ready to start up!


The approach

Many military planes were parked on this airfield.

Our second Russian airport was handled smoothly with “Tonya” as our “handler” we were off to our 40 minute ride to another town to an “UP-north” type of resort, Ahmapuyc, with non-air conditioned rooms we actually found the evening cool down quite pleasant. The Russian beer was tasty and their food very good. I enjoyed the borscht soup and the delicious Russian style chicken.

Path leads to the spring fed swimming pool. It seems to be for hotel guests and local members.
Beautiful hallway leading to pool.
Three large cottages, apparently for holiday rent.
Of course the resident dog….one of a few.
Lupine….flowers just like northern Wisconsin!
Tom with Warren (unusual serious face) and Betsy…allways ready for a local beer…or two!
Interesting heels for the outdoors. How would she escape the bear?? and there are bears in these woods!
Nice, but not planning to book for next summer.
