Aine and Finn and I went for a bit of a drive today, up to Hood Point West, to see if we could see any seals in the Collingwood Channel. No seals, but a couple of Kingfishers, and eagle and some young gulls fishing were all we saw. The clouds in the Sound were hanging around the mountains, but the weather has cleared a little. Once in a while the peaks of the Brittania Range poked through and lo and behold, at about the 1700 meter level, there was a fresh coat of snow. The weather that delivered the rain and wind at sea level on Saturday dusted the mountains with the first snowfall of the season.



As if to take the cue, we received a load of a couple of cords of alder today to burn with our mill ends. It's all about wood, fire and keeping warm and dry now.
