Outpost Caretakers – Animal Pictures

April 18, 2013 | 690 Views

Where does the time go? It’s been 3 weeks now since my last post and only 7 weeks till Mike and I re-enter the real world. I’m thinking restaurants!!!!!

I would like to say I’m sitting here on the back deck soaking up some sun but, we’re having a February-like blustery day. Wind that you can not only see but hear, rain that comes down sideways, the odd bit of hail and a drop in temperature that has Mike building a nice little fire. It is April, isn’t it?

Why don’t we just crank up the heat, well when we get this far into the season the only thing coming from the fuel tanks these days is a hollow ring. Conserving fuel is always the name of the game; we turn off our generator every night, unless the mercury is predicted to drop below freezing and now only turn on the furnace twice a week. Having enough juice to run everything 24 hours a day between the time the summer staff arrives and the barge comes in will always involve some give and take.

What else is happening here in the lovely bay of Port Louis? No a whole lot but we did celebrate a birthday….

…..and we had a quick visit from another vessel in the area foraging for kelp. They dropped the anchor and after a short scavenger hunt pulled up to the the dock in their dingy for a bit of a chat.

Other fishermen in the area.

For the most part the weather has been wonderful lately and there have been a series of days that Mike, myself and the cat have all sat out on the back deck soaking up the sun for an hour or so. When we’re not sitting back, we’re chopping wood. There’s something very satisfying about splitting the hefty rounds of wood into manageable pieces for the fireplace and an ache in muscles you haven’t use in a long long time.

I never get tired of rushing to snap a photo when one of our furry or feathered friends appears somewhere I don’t expect or just look like they want to ham it up for the camera.

till next time,

Heather & Mike
