The first days of fall are off to a brilliant start – sunny and warm – bringing back lingering memories of summer fun. We left Dark Cove at 6:30 Wednesday morning to time our passage through Malibu Rapids. As we entered, six boats were lined up to leave. There were only two boats on the dock when we arrived at Chatterbox Falls and one at anchor. Clearly, the end of the season is near and soon it’ll be time to sail south for the winter. Rain. Wind. And grey days lie ahead.

We have new dock-mates. Yesterday evening, a boat called Yonder came in with two Kiwis aboard who are visiting his mum and her husband. Mark crews on the Tucker R. Thompson during the summer season up in The Bay of Islands – our old stomping ground. He and his wife, Tui, live on a boat in Opua where we lived several years, and it was really nice to catch up on news from a place we still call home.
