We've been blessed with rain-free days since the Holmbergs got here on Wednesday morning and we've been packing in the activities to take advantage of the nice weather. We just got back from a trip up Mt Roberts. Shane really wanted to see the frog orchid that Bob Armstrong showed us last weekend on our nature walk so we obliged by taking the tram up and then hiking for a little way up the mountain.
Last night we were guests aboard a sailboat that was re-positioning from Aurora harbor downtown to Auke Bay Harbor for a weekend sailboat race.
We couldn't have asked for better weather and it was smooth sailing, as they say, all the way. there wasn't much wind for the trip so we were mainly under diesel power but we did put up a sail when we got to some of the good fishing areas so we could do some trolling. Didn't catch anything but it was fun anyway!
We have more plans for tonight and for the next few days and we're hoping the weather holds out. Click on the pink arrow below for a special message from one of the locals:
