Log 7, 23, 49. After the recent torrential rains I went back to the beach. Boat still there, calm winds, a beautiful evening.

Earlier the recovered drone provided spectecular aerial views, flying around this big island, at high altitude.

Still no signs of other humans in this area.

Log 8, 12, 49. Decided to sail again further up North the coast. Found an abonndand ship, lots of supplies. Weather steady, but high humidity, and lots of mosquitos. Blood suckers! Stay mostly in my tent to avoid getting bitten. Decided to return to my old fishing and farming spot in preparation for the coming winter months.

Log 9, 5, 49. The heat is almost unbearable, can only work early, or in the afternoon. Sparky and me went for a hunt a bit farther inland, but no success. We came what appeared to be a pillaged survival bunker. The scene was a mess.

Log 9, 7, 49. After the brutal heat of the last days, suddenly thunder and its pouring on and off. Preparation to leave again, have a bad feeling about this place, saw lights last night and heared gunshots.

Log 10, 3, 49. Arrived at my winter destination, a small island close to the mainland with some buildings still intact. On my way I met another boat with a family, nice and honest people but they went to south. Going to test an old broadcast radio, just have to repair the antenna.
