Beyond Vancouver

We are now two weeks out of Portland, and find ourselves anchored in the smallest of rocky coves along the BC Coast north of Vancouver. Our anchorage is called Smuggler's Cove, and it looks a little like a bullseye on the radar, since it is about 1/8th of a mile across, and ringed with cliffs. We left Vancouver this morning, after a great weekend celebrating with Portland friends in honor the the graduation of Ayla Harker. Our blogging skills are weak, and my ability to utilize the single side band
radio is rusty. Hang in there, friends - we will improve with time. We believe the position report function is working. Dusk now, and we can see a single great blue heron standing on an underwater rock as if she owns the anchorage. We cede it to her.

M & C,

Sounds like you guys are having a great time.

I am back in Hawaii on a brief three week respite from field work. PNG was amazing and there are going to be many great photos and even a few incredible videos of an erupting volcano. The next stop is Vietnam.

Glad to see that you off on your adventure. Sorry we could not see you for the open house...the same day our daughter, Helen, got a serious relapse of the crud (that's medical jargon) that was going around. Your blog is wonderful!!!...and you keep it so up to date! We will follow your updates and dream of when we can follow. For now, we have our "wings clipped".

PS: We have enjoyed Smuggler's Cove several times...just watch for mosquitoes at nightfall...but you might already know that.

LMT and Catherine
I am so happy that you are out and about on your journies with new blog entries. As usual, the pictures, paintings and descriptions are beautiful. I will be tracking you along your great adventures. Erica and I are navigating through what seems to be peak "busy-ness" in our lives. With the kids 12 and 10 now and many things going on with the community, friends, and work, there is rarely a dull moment. Erica and I are loving it and surviving. Safe travels and I will be checking in periodically. RBM
