West Knob – July 15th

15 Jul

We are anchored out at West Nob – which is a bay kind of near Little Current. The La Cloche range is on one side and some small islands are on the other. It is probably not a very safe anchorage but since there is no wind, we should be fine.

We really like it here because there are very few people – we are surrounded by a First Nations reserve and over on the other side of the rock, is a small camp with a tent and people come and go there but leave us alone. Yesterday when we arrived, a couple of people poked their heads out of the bushes to investigate so we waved and they waved back.

The weather has been spectacular – hot and sunny now for several days. Today was probably the warmest so we spent a lot of time in the water and in the shade. Dennis went blueberry picking at 1:00 though with no shirt (duh) and is now sporting a lovely burn on his back. He did manage to find a cupful of blueberries though and we will have them tomorrow for breakfast.

The only thing I don’t like about this place is the shad fly carcasses in the water. I guess because this is a bay, they all ended up here on the surface and are not overly attractive.

Here are a few pictures of our surroundings. That’s all the news for today!

    If I could jump through the computer screen I would! All of that cool water – you are so lucky! I am locked in the house, sitting under the air conditioner. This will be my life for the next 2 months at least. Air conditioned house (room really) to air conditioned van to air conditioned office and back. No real air unless it is dark. I have made some bad choices in life but living here is probably the worst.
