Oy.. the title says it all. Rain, rain, rain, rain, and MORE rain. 8 days ago, someone walked into the library and said, "I heard it was going to rain and blow like a son of a -- for the next 10 days." "Oh," Barb and I laughed, "no way. You never can tell out here and the forecasts are rarely right." Ugh. Eight days of raining and blowing like a son of a --. We've all just about had enough. That's not to say there haven't been any clear spots, there certainly have. We actually got out to the cliffs and did a little fishing. Stupid salmon... jumping right in front of the hook and swimming off. I had one solid bite and one HUGE sculpin (eewwww), but nothing beyond that. Skiffs and small boats were trolling just off shore from us and were having a little bit better luck, but nothing was biting and hanging on from the shore.
$257 fixed the kicker on our sailboat, though, so, when the weather breaks, we'll be headed out after the last of the silvers. Luckily, the lower unit didn't need replacing, just needed some corrosion cleaned off and a part replaced for the shift mechanism. She now shifts "like buddah.." ^___^ (and that means *I* can shift it and go out to check crab traps without the hubby!).
Tomorrow marks ONE YEAR at the Craig Public Library. I can hardly believe it's been a year. Talk about time flying! Still in Craig. Still living underwater (or as close to it as I can get), and wishing I had a better phone for uploading photos 'cause I'm not liking that my Android won't talk to my computer. :/
Fish pics if we get some! Crab picks if our pot setting is successful and I get some Dungeness! ^___^
