May 24, 2017 – Always we see something we’ve never seen before. Today it was the number of eagle’s nests we stumbled across, that Steller sea lions hauled out in an area we’d never seen them before, the kind of fish we saw a sea lion thrashing and devouring. ‘Every trip is different’ we daily joke and yes it is from start to finish. The flood tide today took us to our favorite places. Sailing in paradise – paradise is not yet lost!

Canada Geese, goslings, and nobbly bits
What kind of fish is this? We think it’s a Big Skate.
