It rained all day today, in fact we had at least two days’ worth of rain in one day. There is a gale blowing outside the anchorage so today was confined to the boat and catching up on odd jobs and relaxing. I didn’t go ashore, it was just too wet for any fun. Some gusts have been blowing into the anchorage and pushing us about but it’s quite a sheltered and secure place.
Nothing much to report today, just cleaning, fixing and I made some more bread. A good occupation when its wet, windy and cold outside. I also rediscovered a 4 litre box of Sauvignon Blanc. A bit of a taste shock at first, it’s made from Canadian and imported wines. After the first glass its drinkable.
When I started this trip up the coast I wondered if it would be possible to live for 24 hours without seeing or hearing man-made objects or sounds. I think I have just done it, there is no sign of man here or any sounds, there are probably jet trails overhead but I can’t see them because its overcast. Kent Inlet is quite a remote place – I wonder who Kent was?
The forecast for tomorrow is for reducing winds. All being well I will go for a walk in the morning, have a look for a Spirit Bear and then move a bit further up the coast in the afternoon.
