We have been communicating with our friend and fellow boater/blogger, Hira. The South Sound are her home grounds. We had hoped to meet up with her while she did a recent tour of Peter Puget's exploration of the South Sound, but we ended up on a surprise visit to Portland instead. Yesterday Hira emailed to find out our location, and came down on the flood tide. We were sitting on the island and watching a boat coming and Al spoke exactly what I had been thinking: Could that be Hira?! We had a good evening sharing steaks and conversation.

|As Hira, Shatoosh and Pashmina 2 left this morning, we took photos of each other.|
|It doesn't show in the photo, but we had a view of Mt. Rainier.|
