Wet...and wetter...


Optio works under water. As with all things marked waterproof...you never know 'til you try it. Splash bags and cases(?)...no way. If gear is marked waterproof, then I'll get it under water. If that test doesn't work, then good...and it's back to the store with it, no buts.

Soloed out of Aquaforte today. Good to spend the afternoon on the water....Isaac?...the calm before the storm looks like...

"Isaac is moving northward at 18 knots. There is some uncertainty on the amount of interaction that could take place between a trough of low pressure over the martimes and issac on Monday. Our current forecast track brings Isaac into the Laurentian fan Monday morning and crossing the Southeast corner of the Avalon Peninsula in the evening. However...
The forecast track of Isaac could change and mariners are advised to monitor upcoming forecasts very closely."

Rare to see the word "However..." in a forecast. Either way, we get wet with wind driven rain. Never a dull moment.

That is the warmest, most inviting green imaginable in that photo. Makes me want to lie down and curl up in that plant. Reminds me of dark nights, wool blankets and amber rum.

My Optio paddled all the way around NL with me in my PFD through pouring rain and waves. Held up great. Even took a few underwater pics.
