No real sunrise yesterday, it was a rather grey day on the West Coast.

At 2280 meters the temperature was -3, winds were 5-15 KPH from the West. At 1650 meters the temperature was -9.5, no new snow recorded there. In the valley it is -13. Observations taken at 06:00.

For the forecast the inversions will continue to get warmer as the freezing level continues to climb. No real change in the forecast.

The surfers certainly did not seem to care that it was overcast.

Walking the beaches you realize just how susceptable to a Tsunami you are.

The beaches are just like the mountains in the sense that there are dangers, even explosives.

Its been fun resting the feet, but its time to head back to the mountains.
