Helen, Mark, Al and I went for an evening paddle over to Chatham. It was nice to be able to show them our "back yard". There was a 10-15 knot breeze and a mild flood and it was the first time I had paddled in my bib pants and tuilik in a while. Autumn is definitely here. The tide was high enough that we were able to paddle into the inlet and check out the cactus patch! By the time we got back it was getting dark.
