|Thirteen boats! Now the most we have seen in one place outside of a marina.|
We anchor south of Dead Point on Harbledown Island and prepare to launch the dinghy. We had to think hard to remember the last time we had used it, and came up with Booker Lagoon and our slow dinghy float through tropical looking waters on a RARE sunny day! (It's one of my favorite blogs posts of this summer too...)
But it has been SO long, and it has rained SO much, and Al forgot to remove the drain plug from the dinghy.
|I got the tape measure -- six inches of wetness!|
|Looking east on Beware Passage.|
Last April we visited friends in Victoria, and at the hotel/marina where we kept Viking Star, we met a woman who, when she learned what our summer plans were, asked 'Will you get as far as Harbledown Island?' Monk's Wall was built by her great-great-grandparents! So Denise, if you are still watching our blog -- we made it!!!
|This is the biggest portion remaining. There used to be an arch at this doorway, but it finally fell several years ago. The wall was built in the late 1890's, so it lasted well over a hundred years!|
|Does a bear ____ in the woods??? Yup.|
|Well, THIS is the closest we will get to logging this summer.|
|We pause long enough to take a selfie under where the arch used to be.|
Does a cute hat make up for absolutely no makeup?
|The rocks look like steps, or building blocks. Except for a band of a different color. |
I wish I knew more about the geology of the area.
