|Stern tied in the Copelands. Daydreams in background.|

For all the anchoring I have done this year, this was my first time stern tying this year. It was not a pretty sight and I know that the neighbouring boats were taking in the entertainment. When all was said and done, I updated the logbook, content that I was secure for the night. Tomorrow was going to be an awesome day of kayaking.
No sooner had I closed my log book than I heard, “Hello, hello.” I looked out and down to see a lady swimming to my boat. “Would you like to come for happy appy hour,” she asked. I looked around. She was clearly talking to me. Sure, I thought. “In a half hour,” I asked. She agreed and off she swam.

The norm for me (as it was for me and Ron) is that when I go to an anchorage, the first night I sleep in the cockpit. I like to keep an eye on things, you know, just in case. The moon was just a tad off full and was extremely bright. It was a beautiful night.

It has been a calm day with a few gusts of wind. I went kayaking for an hour to explore a couple little islands in Homfray Channel. Note to self — wear gloves when paddling. I am getting blisters in the crevice of my thumbs.
