Ert sloshes through the water from boat to shore arms out, at speed, huge grin on his face.

It’s tradition that anybody who’s leaving soon gets to declare the agenda for their last day. This is Ert’s last full day, so I’m glad he’s having fun.

He grabs his coat from my arms and sloshes quickly back to the boat. This leaves my hands free to tug at the tops of my Xtratuf boots.

I’m well and truly stuck in mud. So is the boat.

The adventure of the day was out to Soapstone Cove, right at the end of protected Lisianski Inlet.
