Listening to the weather for the evening forecast and trying to
determine the location
of our next anchorage, they were predicting northeasterly winds. We were looking for
an anchorage that would give us some protection. The best bet for the direction we
were traveling was Bear Island, in a small cove on the south shore.
By the time we anchored the wind was light and variable and we set two anchors off the
bow - one keeping us near shore and the other keeping us from getting a little too near.
