What a welcome respite!

The sun finally found Haswell Bay this afternoon (Saturday, June 11), warmed our “sun porch” (the cockpit), provided some photons for our solar panels to use to charge our lithium batteries, and made it possible for me to take a few photos.

Walt and I had decided, after a very wet and windy night and morning, to stay here in the bay for the day and perhaps travel to Hotspring Island on Sunday if winds are manageable and we can see through the expected translucent curtain of rain. Reading, relaxing, writing, and napping in the warmth of the cockpit filled our afternoon, and now, as Walt prepares supper, the mist and rain have returned and I can no longer see the bay’s shores–bears are said to patrol them during the evenings, and I was hoping to catch a glimpse of some ursine activity. We may play backgammon again tonight; I lost twice on Friday!
