Day 16 - Stormbound


Stormbound. The storm seems to be abating very gradually. The tent no longer shakes and rattles, but the water remains white capped and grumpy. The sky is still completely clouded over with a light splattering of drizzle every now and then. We went for a walk northeast along the shore, saw a mother ptarmigan with seven chicks.

Jenny hand-stitched an extension onto my bug-netting shirt while I read aloud from The Quest, Grandfather Explains Vision chapter.

Overall the day has been slightly warmer than yesterday. At 5:30 pm our tiny thermometer read 50 degrees F inside the tent.
