R-31 Parade -- Saturday, 8/3/2013 -- Day 9 of Desolation Sound Cruise -- Day 85

Flat calm in the protected Roscoe Bay as expected this morning and Herb drives Jake to the low tide beach.  He finds an apple tree near the awesome rock formation and brings back a few.

The temperature is 64 degrees out and 69 inside.  We had decided some time ago not to replace our electric coffee pot, preferring the well used, old camp percolator from our motorcycle days.  It warms the cabin very nicely.

Skippers' meeting is at morning coffee on Last Call to decide whether to leave tomorrow, and if so, at what time.  Travel books come out, we look at maps, check tides and currents, and plot our course on the iPad.  

The plan is to leave at 7A, go to Refuge Cove around the corner for provisions and fuel, then anchor in Teakerne Arm Marine Park.

With so many days of Patrick's inviting Jake into his cockpit, he begins to think he lives there.  Here we see him in Patrick's dinghy, ready for a ride.  No, little buddy, it is not time yet.

Shortly after noon the high tide occurs and our three R-31 friends cruise by to say Goodbye as they leave for a new destination.

Cascadia with Anne and Gus stays.

With all the fuss about cold, I neglect to mention that it does get hot. If you can sit in the shade and have a breeze, it is pleasant.   The warming sun can also cause some folks to jump into the refreshing cold water for a swim.  Here is a better photo of the moon jellyfish which swims with Bruce.  

Happy Hour is a happy time of day....
