It's 1545 and so far it has been a very relaxing day. We got up late this morning, I got up about 0800 and Patty got up just a little later. We had pancakes and sausage for breakfast. I went to shore with Buster and did some blueberry picking. I didn't find a lot of blueberries, but enough for a couple of batches of blueberry pancakes. I came back to the boat and then went swimming with Buster. Patty was taking a nap at the time. She got up shortly afterward and went swimming, again with Buster. If either of us is in the water you can bet that Buster will be also. The wind generator seems to be doing a pretty good job of keeping the batteries charged. We've been on Battery #1 now for about 24 hours. It got down to about 50% after the fairly long sail we had yesterday and has remained at 50% since. A little bit more average wind speed and I think that it would get back to 100%. I sat out in the cockpit yesterday as it was getting dusk and saw two deer, both does, they were just wandering the shoreline and came as close as 50 yards from the stern of the boat. Boats anchored in the bay don't seem to bother them. We went to bed early this evening as we will be leaving for Little Current tomorrow very early in the morning
