Planning to head upriver tomorrow. Breakfast at the Portside Cafe. NNW wind has been howling here since yesterday afternoon.
Bad Fish (CRYC) coming back from the Garibaldi Tuna Derby. Alas, seas were rough yesterday, so they turned around. Apparently out of ~35 boats that went out, only 15 got tuna. Our neighbor on Sarana, gifted us a tuna – always good to help the neighbor’s dock their boat.
Needed a few provisions we can’t get in Ilwaco, so took the bus to Sid’s IGA in Seaview. It’s only 35 cents each way, takes about 10 minutes. Got precooked bacon (shelf stable), olive oil, lettuce, feta cheese, and english muffins.
Got laundry done and boat cabin cleaned up and ready for Bill and Arne. They had a good drive down, arrived about 5. We barbequed tuna. Early to bed.
Good thing we cut yesterday’s trip short. Early this morning, a large thunderstorm moved over the ocean right where we would have been sailing in. Report from a tuna boat was a hail storm.
