Fire in the sky. Lingering smoke from the British Columbia wildfires persists. It makes for eerie sunrises and sunsets. When mixed with morning fog, it’s hard to tell what’s what.
A sleepless night let me catch yesterday’s sunrise.
This boat ghosted across the harbor the other morning.
I met a German woman who is an extraordinary athlete. She has sea kayaked alone around Australia, South America and is now working her way around North America. Earlier this season, she paddled from Seattle to Kodiak, Alaska! Now she is working her way south. She seemed a little taken back by the combination of fog or wind, which prevails in August in the Pacific Northwest. She plans to kayak the east coast of North America in the future, maybe our paths will cross again.
Only a handful of seagull chicks have survived around the cabin. It’s unclear what kills them because they appear undamaged. The ones that survive and are beginning to stretch their wings, keep me entertained.

Seals have hauled up on the beaches to nurse the pups and can be heard mewing and barking while we walk the roads.
All’s well in our part of the world.
