Fisherman's Harbour

The 20 to 25 knots never materialized, not even 10. We watched the wind indicators swing in circles in earnest to find a breeze, influenced only by Hold Fast's miserable rolling from port to starboard on breathless seas. Today was a burn of our precious diesel.

Myron checked us in on the Cruizeheimers Net this morning. Dyad noted our position and commented that it is a beautiful area. We would have no idea. Once we left the anchorage, which was indeed beautiful, we saw nothing but fog. Visibility was around 6 boat lengths, sometimes less. As we said before, we are used to that from California, however it can get a little stressful entering an unfamiliar harbor. When we came near shore, visibility opened up and allowed us to evaluate whether to tie up at the dock. Once we brought Hold Fast alongside, we abandoned the idea as part of the dock had broken off into the water and the remaining dockage was less than the length of our boat. We are anchored a bit away from the dock in this well protected harbor. Myron is working on downloading some weather faxes from NOAA and I need to get dinner going.

I miss the sun. I know it is out there.

Love to all,
