Day 8 – Camano Island to Ala Spit

Sat, May 9, 2009 ~ 20 mile day.  Exhausted now.  Did not sleep well at Camano either night despite no wind at a very protected campsite.  Fastest pack and unpack of the boats so far.  Amazing weather today.  After being out all day on Camano in the sun, I’ve got sun bumps on the backs of my hands, so I wore light gloves today.  The gloves do not seem to have helped.  The bumps are mildly itchy but other than that, not a major problem.  Phil’s got some on his ears. 

We were much more diligent about eating and drinking during our breaks today.  I feel much better because of it.

Hello! I’ve been reading about you two in the blog and thinking about you guys often. Hope your adventures are as memorable and type 1 filled as possible. One day soon we will get to trade pictures and stories over a cold beer. Enjoy the journey and know that all of us working are living our dreams through you right now.
