June 9, Friday afternoon

The Coast Guard rolled in yesterday morning with Steve, Bob, and Chris coming ashore to repair the fog signal. Despite excellent problem-solving and teamwork, they were unable to finish the repair. I look forward to seeing them again next week maybe. The fog is in today! 

What a treat yesterday to meet Deb and John sailing the Mahayana on their way to Virginia, and full of invigorating stories from their 10 years of sailing and adventures in 21 countries. Happy Anniversary today! From the catwalk on the tower we stood several minutes entranced by a couple of humpback whales – a calf and presumably it’s mama – sharing themselves off the island’s east side. Awesome.
