Beautiful today. A morning Squamish gave way to bright sunshine and warm air and still waters this afternoon. I walked with friends Toke Moeller and Monica Nissen at Cape Roger Curtis and we had the whole place to ourselves. Not even any big rafts of scoters; just a solitary sea lion patrolling the point and some cheeky ravens. It almost felt warm enough to swim. Strange weather.

There is snow on the mountains but no sign of the chum yet. Salmon calling season is in full swing, but we haven't been hit by any substantial Pineappl Expresses yet. One last week that hit the souther part of Vancouver Island didn't make it to Bowen which was very strange. It has been wetter than usual this year, but I think the fall has been average so far.
