We went out for coffee, filled the water tank, did many loads of laundry, brought new Canadian friends Barry and Donna along for those burgers, got more coffee the next morning, and bought over $200 of groceries!
I have learned about packing a fridge and can now use nearly every cubic inch -- all but that middle tray on the door. Anything put there just falls out when we open the door. On the bottom shelf we can tuck things behind bottle necks and they stay fairly well.
We topped off the water once again, and headed for Parks Bay across the channel. I had observed a flock of small birds swimming across the bay, back and forth, and the next morning they came closer. They had orange feathers! This was new. My bird book told me they were Horned Grebes in breeding plumage.

We only spent the one night in Parks Bay and then went to Prevost Harbor on Stuart Island. We met Dick and Cheryl aboard Paradox there. They were pulling in to Friday Harbor just as we were leaving, and we arranged to meet here. We met them at the Power Squadron cruise in Anacortes a couple weeks ago.
We will be staying here for a couple more days.
