Day 42: Freshwater Bay, Swanson Island

Day 42: Freshwater Bay, Swanson Island

Thursday, July 25

We had a really lazy day today. Got up late and stayed on the boat most of the day. It was quite windy and we didn’t feel like working too hard paddling so we left the kayaks on Snug’s deck. Ron spent the afternoon working on accounting and I sat in the sun for awhile and knitted for awhile. It was a day of threes: people in three kayaks had a lunch break on our beach, then three 24 foot powerboats came in and rafted up for a few hours, then three cruise ships steamed down Blackfish Sound. Eventually we went ashore to pick mint and then rowed out to Flower Island to do some jigging off the kelp bed. There were humpbacks feeding quite close to Flower, rolling around and coming out of the water with their mouths open. Later we sat in the cockpit appreciating the clean, fresh air here and admiring our view of the mountains on Vancouver Island.
