01 Sep 09 John Wayne Harbor in Sequim, Washington. We filled the larger Munson with wood for chopping and headed to the Island. At the (Sequim harbor) dock, while we rapidly carried loads of wood from the truck down the ramp and onto the boat, Peter caught his foot on a tie cleat and fell into the water. We always wore our flotation devices when working on docks with the boats and only Peter’s pride was hurt.
31 Aug 09 Pelagic cormorants at the harbor entrance.
03 Sep 09 For several days we used the larger Munson for all our transports, due to our assigned boat being in Port Townsend and having new bottom paint put on it. On this evening, as we returned to the Island from mainland appointments, I stopped the boat just to get this moonlighted photo.
