There was a new female elephant seal in front of the house this morning. She appears to be too small to be pregnant. Perhaps she already birthed a pup elsewhere and departed, or maybe she is too young to give birth yet.
The other four elephant seals remained over by the path all day.
Chuckles, mum and pup still on Middle Rock.
Spotted about 12 harbour seals on South Rock/swimming nearby.
Continued stacking the newly prepared firewood under shelter so it can dry.
Picked up plastic and styrofoam from the ramp/jetty area.
Vacuumed up hundreds of fruit flies in the basement near the composting toilet. I think from now on this will be a daily chore, rather than a maintenance action worthy of note.
The HMCS Ottawa was out again most of the day.
Made the appropriate inquiries into yesterday’s pleasure craft fishing and eco-tour boat observations.
There seemed to be some mild DND blasting around noon.
