If Friday was very calm it was not the same story on Saturday and Sunday. Actually we had the same pattern of weather: wind around 20 in the morning picking up around 7:00PM getting 35 to 37 knots around 8:PM. We had some fog a big part of the day on Saturday.
The Sea lions came back to their favorite spot on main closed to the derrick house and they slept like they would in a dormitory side by side.The birds were stressed by the wind and we had to wear our helmet…It was a continuous show around with the gulls :fly and fight ..many fights and a lot of shouting. The younger now are getting good at flying and some even left the rock.2016 nesting season is at the end.
Very dirty solar panels !Thick!…I put some peat moss in the compost. Guy installed the electrical line because of the heavy concrete posts, it was a big job among the shouting birds and sea lions behind.Generator on for 12 hours; desalinator on too. Last time was 10 days ago
