Pretty Average Day


  • Visibility: 15+ miles
  • Great view of Mt. Baker and the Olympics today.
  • There appears to be a very small fire across the water in Washington.
  • Wind: 5-10 knots West, up to 20 in the evening.
  • Sky: clear with a view clouds.
  • Water: mostly calm


  • The usual 15 elephant seals on Great Race today.
  • I enjoyed watching them play on the ramp.
  • Some of them just lie there and occasionally splash water onto their backs with a flipper. Very handlike those flippers of theirs.


  • More weed whacking. Took out lots of the Canada Thistle.
  • Cleaned the solar panels.
  • Investigated the pressure washer for future use.


  • At least 5 eco-tours today.


  • A few DND blasts today.
  • The detonations occurred farther to the West than usual.

Smokey bang!
