end of calm weather

No recreational fishing effort count this morning due to fog
Fog cleared mid-day, and is now blowing back in with the help of 30 kt winds
High tides in the evening mean that nearly all the reserve sealions are camped outside the main house and near the jetty
There are now 8 Canada geese on the island making a mess of things.


  • Ran desalinator and fixed leak on high pressure dial
  • Cleaned solar panels
  • Cleared debris and tidied up around buildings
  • Wrote an SOP for water sampling


Off island yesterday from 1200 to 1700 for Pearson College paperwork and orientation. Returned in time for evening water sampling. 3 marine mammal tour boats were watching sealions on the jetty when I returned. Perfect, glassy water all day.
