Looks like Frank & Frieda went else where tonight. You can see their empty nest.
Actually,it was a tad windy so they went to the lee of the island to wait it out.

SUNSET STAR BURST
SUNSET GOD RAYS
This whole area floods at high tide. That root ball got swept down stream during a high rain event! The stream swells tremendously during heavy rainstorms. The fast flowing water undercuts the trees along side the bank & they fall into the raging stream. The trees are then unceremoniously carried downstream to a new resting place.

NEW ROUTE INTO TRANQUIL
I went down to Tranquil today. I found a new route in! Because of that log jam, there is a newly carved route into Tranquil! I was pleasantly surprised.
I suppose during the winter time when we had our strongest rains, the streams volume increased so much so that it couldn’t get through the log jam & flowed around this blockage! There is a new flow route!
I’ve been coming into Tranquil for several decades now & have never noticed this route before?
I know I couldn’t of missed it. I could see lots of recently deposited gravel all around. Being a X Geologist I slowly started figuring out what had happened.
I had my chest waders with me this time. I hopped out & gently pulled my boat upstream.
The exit of a stream will flow back & forth across it’s estuary many times over hundreds of years. All the boulders & gravel will get rolled over again & again, making the stones smoother.
I could see that the next Frontal system was closing in fast! By the time I got to Tsapee Narrows I had 10 minutes or so before the light went bye bye for the day!
I didn’t have the light,so I couldn’t take too many pictures today. Still,it was great getting out!
SUN HALO…………BAD WEATHER COMING

THE DAREDEVIL’S SEQUENCE
I was down at the camp site doing some work for several hours & by the time I came back out,I noticed the leading edge of a system moving in. As I approached Tsapee Narrows I could see I only had 5 minutes max of sun light left before it went bye bye for the night!
So I only got to visit one of my friends tonight before I had to call it.
