With three tours, it was a busy day for work. We went to Point Brown beach twice and to a beach in Nawkwasina once.
Weather: The rain was not constant, but when it fell, it seemed to come down in buckets. Unfortunately, the time of the squalls seemed to coincide with times I was required to be out on deck helping with lines or loading and unloading of passengers.
Birds: There were quite a few birds at Point Brown beach. I saw several Least and Western Sandpipers. Also, Black Oystercatchers were resting out on the rocky point. A couple of Pacific Slope Flycatchers were working the edge of the forest. At least one of them must have hatched out this year, as I saw another bird feeding it.
Other Notes: The Beach Groundsel seems to be at its blooming peak this week.
We saw a Humpback Whale swimming just past the kelp near Point Brown beach. This was at least the second time I have seen a whale there this summer.
There were a dozen or so Harbor Seals hauled out on a rock in Nawkwasina.
