Hariot Bay, B.C.
Greetings from Hariot Bay which hasn’t changed since 1954, including the Adirondack chairs. GORGEOUS sunset last night. See photo.
The evening of the 8th we ended up at Hàthayim Marine Park down the Donop Inlet on Cortes Island. We moored in a mostly private bay for the evening. I read mostly, as I was nervous about getting my hand wet. Peter and Doreen took out the kayak (jealous!) though. This was the night we were supposed to have in Small Inlet (wah wah, sob sob) before I cut my hand.
The winds really kicked up yesterday when we left Hàthayim, so it took us 3-4 tries to find a spot that wouldn’t whip us around all night long. I still managed to wake up with stomach cramps and threw up a bit. Maybe the Codine? Needless to say, everyone is getting in some extra sleep this morning while I write this after being kept up half the night.
Not sure what the plan is today. It’s still a little bit windy, so we may not be able to moor as we had planned. A front may be coming in…
Only 48 hours left until we return to Campbell River for our flight to Seattle! I booked a hotel with mountain views and a hot tub. So much for the hot tub!!
