Murray are you going to Gillan Harbour? .. On Dewdney Is?

Then there's Chapple Inlet, McMicking Inlet, Betterridge Inlet, Dunn Passage and Weinberg Inlet, and the channel on the east side of Barnard Is. Turtish Harbour on Aristazabal Is also looks very interesting. Take kayaks. And please please take camera.

It worked.

Tell FlyWright to stay away from Mildred. Nothing good will come of that.

Is it just me, or does the Coot look bigger in video form? She sure is a classy vessel.

Home now, but a one day cruise to Miami and back tomorrow. Just local for the next three weeks. Perhaps as far as Key West or Bimini or Daytona during this down period. We're actually both working in the office today.

Rainy time in Northeast Brazil these days. We'll be back running in early October. Meanwhile, Flybridge covering project is ongoing, getting ready for less wet times.

Bon voyage to all of you in this summer. Be safe and enjoy!!!

We all made it to Mildred Island for a 2 night anchorage. Perfect temps in the low 80s with low humidity and moderate daytime winds in a well-rotected cove. As the sun set, the bugs came out which kept us inside...an unusual occurrence in California.

From L-R; Carquinez Coot (markpierce), Mahalo Moi (Giggitoni), Frisky (bligh) and Satori (Delta JimS)

Final tally: exactly 100 NM in 12:33. Avg speed 8 Kts thanks to the tidal push.

The edges of the flooded island are full of wildlife including this excellent example of Argiope aurantia.

Just got back from a week of houseboating on Lake Powell in southern Utah. Now that was a different type of boating for me and stunning scenery. We tied the boat up to some big rocks in a canyon and took expeditions to explore other canyons in 18' ski boats. Really fun!

Think next for us, this weekend, is a cruise up NY harbor to the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and others.

We love cruising the harbor there. Nothing like that approach. While we don't get back to NY for a couple of weeks still, we took a two day trip to Bimini. We headed over this morning and by 9:30 were in and cleared. Then played around in a RIB. Now relaxing a bit before an early dinner and a little bit of time in the casino. Tomorrow, more time exploring on land and back home late tomorrow afternoon. Nice to live only an hour and half from Bimini.

Next immediate "voyage" is taking my recently retired director of videography and his wife out in our fishing boat to do some crabbing, since we were so successful at it this past weekend.

Our next trip in the big boat will be a club cruise to a local harbor town that has a big arts fair every year where they close off the streets and so on.

Our next real "voyage" will also be in the big boat and will combine a club cruise to an interesting and historical bay in the San Juans which will then be followed be our own two or three week trip in the Gulf Islands of BC in September. We've been there a number of times but there are still some anchorages and harbors we haven't experienced yet.

That will take us into what we feel is the best cruising (and fishing) season of the year here which is September through early May. Hopefully, and unless work gets in the way which it has a bad habit of doing, we'll have the opportunity to use both the boats we have in this area a lot through the winter.

Well, we have a busy calendar but between work and the weather our boating plans tend to get whittled down a fair amount. Last winter was fairly mild weather-wise but it was very busy work-wise.

What the weather will do this winter is anyone's guess. Maybe we simply won't have any weather at all. Nothing, zip, zero, nada. Now that would be interesting.

Even when the winter weather is bad we still use the boat almost every weekend. We use it like some people use a cabin in the woods or wherever, a way to get out of Dodge for a couple of days even if we don't actually take the boat out. We've finally had the main cabin re-cushioned so it's comfortable to sit in now, so that will make weekends on board more appealing.

So we'll see what happens. The big boat can take far worse water than the small boat but the big boat's no good for fishing to say nothing of the fact it's in the wrong place for that.

On the other hand, if we always knew exactly what was going to happen in the future it would take all the excitement out of life, don't you think?

PS- Been on any cool trains lately?

Next week- heading from Toms River NJ up to New York Harbor-then up the Hudson to explore Lake Champlain. On the return trip we are going to do some canal crawling on the Erie Canal before heading back South to Jersey.. Round trip 18/20 days.
