Mirage in Labrador

The land appears to be elevated above a white layer in this picture. This mirage is the result of warm air over cold water and earth, and is quite common along the rugged, beautiful coast of Labrador, Canada, where we are now. We came in to the Labrador coast to sit out a forecast gale at sea, and have seen many mirages today.

Looking For Charts

The charts that are currently being used are stored in the pilothouse on Issuma. Charts for other areas are stored in the bedroom, under the mattress, in strong garbage bags (to keep them dry). Every once in a while, I dig through the garbage bags of charts in the bedroom to find the ones we need next.
