Late July

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the lack of communications from this end, but it has been very busy for the last few weeks. The docks are full every night and there are long lines for the gas dock space. The radio calls and telephone calls are unending and simultanious. I need many more hands than I have.

Our hours of work have been nuts, as usual. Twelve hour work days, running all the time. And then there are the evening calls for ice or dock reservations or info. We turn off the radio when we retire for the night and that isn’t quite early enough most nights.Our one day off (separately ) a week gives us time to do laundry and clean our little cabin.

Soon, the traffic will slow and the boats will disappear again. And then we will have time to write to you all again and catch up on what is happening in the world around us.

The temperature here has finally risen to seasonable levels and our days are even hot! The nights are cool enough for a blanket, which is why we love it here.

So, again, I must apologize for neglecting to respond to your notes and e-mails. I have no excuse other than the lack of time and energy.

Hopefully, your world is going well and life is treating your well. Take care of yourselves.

Hugs, Heather & Murray
