|Morning calm at Privateer Bay|
I sensed some skepticism about Salt Island but I think that after our stay here, I can honestly say that a good time was had by all! There was a bit of wave action in the anchorage but it wasn’t enough to irritate and it did calm somewhat overnight, much to my relief.
There is a headstone on the fresh grave that we saw during our last visit… still piled with flowers only now it is noted that James Durante resides here… The lonely wind will forever whisper across his final resting place. I like thinking about that…
|The inlet where they flood the salt pond|
We backtracked and I found the sun now shining through the leaves of a gnarled old scrubby tree that had a fascinating shape and bark of many colors. It began to rain lightly again but only for a bit… then I joined Bruce, as always patiently waiting and we found our friends.

|Just the Girls|
While we explored the beach a second catamaran arrived and parked just on our port side. Their Buddy boat had anchored previously on our Starboard… In my opinion they were both way too close… How ironic that the second boat had fenders lined up along the length of their boat… private joke there…
