Howdy from Tofino! Arrived late last night, finished two medium pizzas and crashed the cheapest B&B in town. Luxury.
Today's weather forecast is quite good, with a little less wind than yesterday so we're anxious to hit the water. We'll be offloading that green glass fishing float today too, which should ease the boat control challenges we encountered yesterday... Photo pending.
Here are a few other photos from the Port Hardy to Tofino stretch. This bear was hunting purple spiny urchins along the rocky shore; as we drifted by downwind we watched him peel a couple off rocks, then hunker down and chow through them like they were hunks of bread. Some claws.
Thanks to Jon for the blog support, sat phone and late nights - Jon's off for a few days of whitewater canoeing (with Kirti, Kim and Karl - many thanks to Karl for lending me some critical gear, hope you don't miss it too much) and our friend Dan will make the last few blog entries.
Time to find the laundromat, lose some salt, then hit the water! See you in Victoria in a few days, hopefully back on Orcas by Monday.
