Awoke as we coming in to dock at a wharf loaded with trimmed tree trunks, ready for shipping. We had a leisurely morning with time for breakfast as our shuttle bus wasn't leaving until 10:30. The drive went through green, wooded countryside and I imagine the chimney spewing white steam into the air indicated a wood-chipping mill.

... excited and a little worried since the sun was still in hiding at what was now 9 am. After finding prime real-estate on the beach, we laid out our towels and waited for the sun to appear. When at 10:30 it still hadn't appeared we decided to take matters into our own hands, bracing the sunless day by entering into the chilly water. The water, though cold at first, managed to quickly warm us up as the waves began to hit us one at a time. The waves ...
