15 June, 1770

 

On 15 June, 1770, James Cook wrote “Strong gales at SE and Clowdy hazey weather with showers of rain”.
Endeavour was just outside Endeavour River.

Joseph Banks wrote “Blew all day as fresh as it did yesterday. We thought much of our good fortune in having fair weather upon the rocks when upon the Brink of such a gale. Our people were now however pretty well recoverd from their fatigues having had plenty of rest, as the ship since she was Fotherd has not made more water than one pump half workd will keep clear. At night we observd a fire ashore near where we were to lay, which made us hope that the necessary lengh of our stay would give us an oportunity of being acquainted with the Indians who made it”.
