Kyuquot (Walter's Cove)

02 August 2007
(The photo is the best John could get of the whale dance from the other day.)

We arrived today at Mike and Susie's home port, Kyuquot (or Walter's Cove, I don't know which they prefer). Unfortunately, they aren't home, but their daughter Kristy was expecting us to show up eventually. Susie had told her we were coming. Mike and Susie are out tuna fishing, and who knows when they'll be back. We've found free wi-fi here, so we're planning to stay a day and get the blog and website caught up. The supply boat just came in (really, just now ??" John went to get a photo), so we'll restock our larder too. There was a store at Winter Harbour, but it didn't have much, and we planned to buy stuff here anyway. This store is much better, and we might as well give the money to friends. Really good job with the store, Susie!

Sorry we haven't been able to update our position on Yotreps. We think it's a problem with our radio, and we'll get it fixed in California, either San Francisco or San Diego. In the interim, please don't worry about us if you don't hear anything. We're very careful and don't like being out in storms. You can assume we're nestled somewhere if you see a storm in our path.
