It was 18:00 on the 24th of May when we finished saying our good-byes to The Outpost. As the first of The Outpost summer staff unloaded their gear from the Beaver, we loaded ours, said hello, said good-bye and boarded the plane for Masset. By 16:00 we had all but resigned to the growing likelihood of spending one more night, as the winds were already 20-30 knots and increasing. The gale was just beginning and winds of up to 45 knots were expected within a few hours.
Wendi had made a nice big lasagna for the incoming staff and it was ready. I finally decided to eat, figuring that I’d no sooner tear into the lasagna and the plane would come over the hill. I was not too far off. We had just finished eating and Wendi was putting the dishes in the sink when the plane roared overhead.
We were out of there like a rat out of an aqua duct!
It was a bumpy ride but we touched down in Masset in an amazing six inches of water… Crazy!
We spent the night at Gerry’s B&B and now we’re just waiting for our flight to Vancouver.
Over & Out!
