Inland Passage 2016

June 25, 2016

The rain was hitting the tent with force this morning and the wind was also strong.  The waves had increased in size from where they were yesterday and besides there was no visibility due to fog. Sounds like a good day to hunker in the tent. First though we were somewhat hungry and headed over to our kitchen tarp. We discovered a couple of unwanted guests had taken advantage of Don's coffee cup.

 The slugs were all different colors and sizes.

Whoever said that slugs were slow had not met the slugs here. We would remove them gently of course from our area and then watch as they would quickly move back.

 Good entertainment watching them moving in on us.

First a fishing boat went by, we heard it for quite a way before seeing it:

Then a cruise ship, doubt if they are getting much of a view:

Then an airplane;

By this time we had no doubt in our minds that we would be here for the day. We headed back to our tent where we opened up the speaker gift that Jeff had sent us. Soothing music to relax ones soul seemed appropriate.

 Life if good.

As the saying goes, One can not stay on the summit for ever, eventually one has to come down. Think that is also true for one can not stay horizontal in the tent for ever, one must get up and go out. After reading and even taking a short nap, we decided to venture out into the elements. We thought if we could crash thru the downed logs we would get to the logging road and be able to take a hike. Getting to the road was not exactly easy, but with determination we eventually got there.  

 Hard to imagine the cost of putting these road in.

 Seems like there is a lot of waste here.

We did get to take a walk on the road, it was nice to stretch our legs, but can not say we appreciated the view. This is a very large clear cut. The feeling one gets here is so different than the one gets walking thru the trees that are growing around our campsite.  Back to the tent, staying warm and cozy inside our tent. Hard to know what tomorrow will bring, but we have lots of water and plenty of food.
