  Fury Cove
  Posted by: chodups on Jun-11-12 9:00 PM (EST)
 

A short day today from Open Bight to Fury Island that was dominated by light rain. Not sure that light rain in a rain forest can count as dominating anything and, in fact, is anything other than a nice day up here. I would count it as very nice wind and current conditions to cross Rivers Inlet and arrive at Penrose.

Denis is back “inside” now and while the current still flows and the wind still blows Calvert Island, 5.5 NM to the west, provides some cover. He is probably feeling pretty good about his options. Continue north up Fitz Hugh Sound (an area he is familiar with) or go outside of Calvert Island. I think he can hit Addenbroke Lighthouse with his FM from here so they may be expecting him tomorrow.

The beach at Penrose is brilliant white and composed of clamshell fragments. Inside the upland forest are some areas that accept tents plus there is a large cabin there with a stove made of a 55 gallon drum, shelves, counters and a King-sized sleeping platform. If his SPOT is accurate it looks like he is in the forest rather than the cabin.
