Hmmm...JRD22 can verify this story. 1 or 2 in the morning we had to vamoose out of a bad bay and into Bute inlet for the long fight back. Have you ever tried to find a spot for a dog to do his business at night in an inlet blowing 20 or 25? There are no good spots! There only seems to be bad spots at the bottom of cliffs. I watched John and Laurie pull it off from the comfort of my boat. What a long long night that was.
