You are quite welcome, I'm glad you are enjoying following along with us. The halibut is a nice size and filled the freezer but that's where they take the charter guys. You have to be a local or know somebody to get in the deeper water where the big fish are.

I never had to take a cold shower but sometime it took some real tenacity to coach some heat out of the old heater. The new one you flip the switch and forget about it. Very nice indeed.

It is a nice place but the mosquitos were pretty thick. We have been pretty lucky staying close to the water but not here.

If you double click on this picture those are more rocks way in the distance. It is apparently very shallow around here.
