The cove where Lyss and I have wound up is called Ward Cove. Because of the direlect boats and the remnants of the old pulp mill, it has that feel of the movie Goonies. She has said so much, so now it's Goonies Cove. On the inland side of it, where Ward Creek comes out of the island and meets the ocean, there are relatively high mountains that surround it. On this foggy, rainy day, the tops of these mountains are covered by clouds. It's pretty spectacular.

You know you're an NPR junkie when you listen to Will Shortz's puzzle and the guest that calls and has to play is blowing it, and you're frustrated! WTF?
Yesterday, we volunteered at KRBD, the local public radio station. I'm hoping to spend enough time there that I get a show at some point. I'm hoping the same for Lyss. It would be good for us.
Today, we were thinking of hiking near "Wolverine Lake" or more correctly called Cornell Lake, a reservoir a few miles from town up Ward Creek. I call it Wolverine Lake because the dam and the area look like the secret area where Logan a.k.a. Wolverine got the atimantium grafted onto his bones in the X-Men comics. It's really pretty, but I think about it in this cool, carnal, manly. I really want to go there and howl like I have claws coming from the back of my hands.
But... it's raining. We'll see if it clears up. If not, only 5 more episodes of Space: Above and Beyond...
