After a full afternoon courtesy of Dan, we slept like babies. The motel has a light continental breakfast so we indulge. Something about cold orange juice in the morning that gets you going huh?
Dan meets us at the motel at 0730 hrs. He brings a friend Pete. They’re here to help us get the yaks back into the water off the high dock. We have to also get the boats down a steep wooden stairway to the water. It’s low tide so that helps.
We load the yaks up top near the pool then drag them into position. We’re glad to have Dan and Pete here. Four is better than two in this case.
After saying our goodbyes we drift away.
Our schedule over the next several days has us camping. There are some 20+ miles mixed in. Shouldn’t be too bad as long as we catch the tides just right.
Funny thing about tides. They can be your best friend or worst enemy. We use an app called “Sea Tow” to get weather and tide information every morning before shoving off. It’s free and surprisingly accurate. Lots of hidden features makes it great for kayaking.
Looks like some heavy rain clouds building to the west. Gotta go button up the yaks and tidy up the tents before the rain comes.
Marc and Jim.
