Remains hot for this part of the world, currently 23C, expected to reach towards 30C with some relief in the forecast overnight, remains to be seen. Temps supposed to slack back some starting tomorrow moving to more 'seasonal' in low 20's for the remainder of the week, let us hope.

We are not wired to enjoy these temps, no AC in the house, always can depend on an afternoon breeze to do the job. Once or twice each summer this method abandons us for a few days, and we certainly moan about the extreme temps, almost 30C on some occasions.

Tourist traffic doesn't seem to be overwhelming by any stretch. Emily's first effort at Anchorage another learning experience, learning how to maintain a toilet one skill she can add to her resume. Rob out the door 0700, works till nearly same hour in the evening, beginning to take on an aboriginal hue for skin colour.

A two master anchored across the harbour yesterday, gone sometime around daylight this morning. A nice looking outfit for sure, first time have seen this part of the harbour used as an anchorage, a fine one it is.

CHUNKS, had to get back lots of misinfo, Whales N Sails in commence have been for a few weeks, have no idea of the crowds, weather iffy at the outset, now offshore is the place to be. SAILORS LANDING under new management, going great guns, can now have beer or wine with your meal, another revelation for sure.

Check out TOP OF THE ISLAND TOURS on the internet and will give you an insight of what Stephen is up to. He run one of the boats on the Reversing Falls tours a few seasons, went on his own here last year. Small tours believe the max is twelve people. He also runs to Campobello Island to visit ROOSEVELT PARK.

Temp maxed here at around 27C a slight northerly draft making it an ideal day to gander across the water, makes up for some of those inclement days we complain about. As Donna's dad has said, sure hope he never dies he is not convinced heaven can offer more.

Dear Rob:

Stephen (who?) is giving the sunset tour? I will recommend to one and all travelling over if I know the name. Talked to the folks there last night and they said that Whales and Sails was not operating this year - so far? What is up with that? Also, they said Sailors landing wasn't open. Are these truisms?

Also got the word that the North Head post has been sold for some commercial business, but not sure what? Questions, questions ??

I can imagine what color Rob is - haha. Sarah is getting there herself, whilst Cody is stuck in the bay most of the day so he is not black yet, but getting there from other activities.

I am sure that Emily was not amused to learn how to maintain a toilet - especially if it was an outdoor one - but, it makes them all the more appreciative when they have their own careers. It is one of those things she can use when she has her own kids: "WHEN I WAS YOUR AGE, I WAS CLEANING OUTHOUSES FOR MY MONEY" Bahaha

Well, we have a fair breeze up so it is tolerable, although still hot. Going to do some stuff before it quits. Have a good one and hopefully the fan will keep you 'somewhat' cool. Good luck with that. :)

Word. Chunks.

Mornin CHUNKS, can only imagine what the temp is in your part of the world by this time. The weather man suggesting high for us is 25C by this afternoon, already past 26C, with no sign of letting up anytime soon. The office here has no air conditioning, temp in my office 26.5C, have a fan moving hot air around to make believe it is cooling the area, whatever works I guess.

Great weather for travellers, however the Anchorage not overly busy to this date, the season is moving along at a good rate.

The sunset cruise out of North Head has a new an improved vessel, Stephen seems to be doing alright with a slow start due to weather. It is quite an experience leave North Head cruise to the back of the island to catch the sun going down on the American Side, unique for sure. On some the cruises he also hauls a trap to demonstrate how that is done, goes by Swallowtail, Whale Cove, etc. a nice evening for sure.

Mornin David, we like Cranberry having problems contending with the heat, usually have some respite with the "afternoon sou'wester", not this week. The afternoon draft has all but quit, long after dark before the temps dips below the 20C mark, unusual but fortunately not a longterm phenom as a rule.

What little feedback getting on local efforts in the 'grey zone' mirror what is going on in your part of the ocean. Scuttlebutt has it some are coming home for a few weeks before giving it another shot. It is a bit of an expense to get in the 'zone', a designated route to get there adds some sailing time combined with high bait prices not very attractive at the moment.

Tony his son have set halibut trawl this past week, an again this week, he expects the small amount of quota to be captured quickly. Haven't heard on how things went this week, price nothing to yell about in the $5/lb range, some locations even less.

Stay cool.
