Good morning Longbranch.
Maddee the goofy golden doodle and I just got back from a nice quiet walk on the beach along Drayton Passage. And what a sight it was.
It is a balmy 61 degrees but the weather geeks say it will not be as hot today as it was yesterday. Our high will top out at 75 and we may experience a light sprinkling of rain later in the day.
The boats rafting on the mouth of Amsterdam Bay have since left and the flotilla on Filucy Bay have thinned out quite a bit. But the motors of small fishing skiffs could still be heard zipping around the Passage, fishing perhaps or checking crab pots still in the water.
What a wonderful place to live — waking up to singing birds and a spectacular sunrise. Life on the southern tip of this rural peninsula is worth every minute I spend commuting to work each day.
