During low tides the East Channel marker lays almost flat on the rocks and it looks like there is just enough room between the rocks and our dock for big boys like F/V Arica, which draws almost 20 feet when loaded, to sneak through. In reality, as long as they stay centered they're fine - you can see the eagles throwing a little party on the skiff stacked on the stern are totally unconcerned. Smaller boats like the sport fishing boat in the bottom photo sometimes don't even use they channel, they just cut across the gap.
This weekend was fun, we went to Bear's birthday party on Saturday night then we hosted Book Club tonight. I'll get some birthday pictures posted tomorrow!
