We saw some porpoises and skittles

Describe the anchorage or moorage where Carlyn is right now:

On Stuart island in a forested area. There is water all around us. The weather is really calm and very pretty

At the beginning of the day, it was average, but then it got a bit warm.  The winds were really calm then it started to drizzle.

Putting sails up for the first time, looking @ the microscopes, and using the colorimeter.
