The rain cleared and this afternoon the sun came out. I went along Fife Sound with a lot of white sided dolphins and now am anchored in Old Passage between Insect Island and Baker Island, where a pair of harbour porpoises welcomed me.

I paddled around Insect Island and maybe it got it’s name from the large horseflies that seem to live there. The trap had one large dungeness crab, which made a nice pasta dinner. During the day I encountered a few kayakers, most looking rather wet after the rain of the last few days, and I was grateful for Ancient Murrelet, with a hot shower, comfortable bed and good coffee.
