Arthur and I went out in the boat in the morning. Still no fish. I worry, sometimes, that Arthur is making some major mistake with respect to his fishing technique, which is causing the fish to avoid us. I wouldn’t know if he was – because I have very little experience fishing. On the way back to the house in the boat, we experienced some disconcerting engine behavior with the outboard motor. So we need to deal with that.
In the afternoon, we took a walk down the road. We met a bear. Arthur said, “Looks like it’s time to go the other direction.” I agreed.
Here is a tree past mile 9.
Here is water looking out at San Juan Island, in the morning.
