Companions: Solo on the water but met up with Otto and Larry Herrmann later on
Weather: Hot mostly sunny and windy
Notes: I needed to get my gear sorted and dried before meeting up with Larry and Otto so I made it a shorter than normal day.
A rain shower woke me at about 4:00 AM this morning and I happily rolled over in bed and fell back asleep to the sound of rain drops strumming the roof of my tent. Happily by 6:00 when I emerged from the safety of the tent the skies had broken and rays of sunshine through the broken clouds hinted at the nice day that was in store for me.
