The day was hot and sunny and still as we moved down the west side of Cortes Island, through the narrow channel between Cortes and Marina Islands, past Hernando Island to Savary Island. There were lots of boats anchored or beached on Marina and lots of sails in the bay on the other side—people enjoying their summer everywhere you looked, although the sail boats weren’t going anywhere in a hurry. I swam off Snug when we got anchored at Savary, then we rowed in to walk the sandy beach and swim from shore. Lots of people doing the summer thing there too. The “super moon” rose over Savary and there was a lovely sunset to the west.
