What do you do when you run out of propane?

The first "mishap" on the trip was running out of propane. Fortunately the weather was good and a small fire was good enough. This is where we were stuck for a day because high winds and 2-metre waves trapped us at Raspberry Cove on Moresby Island.

This shot is of Lexie, our cook / guide doing "Plan B".

What do you do when you loose your outboard motor?

Well, this was a result of our second "mishap". The little 5-hp motor on the dingy bounced out of the boat in rough seas. Paddling was the only way to commute between the boat and shore...

Stellar sea lion colony

There was a large colony of Stellar Sea Lions on a small island just east of Moresby Island.

Still water on Hecate Strait

It was hard to believe this is one day after we had hunker down at Raspberry Cove due to high winds and waves. The water on Hecate Strait was almost mirror like/

Still water on Hecate Strait - II

This is another still area on Hecate Strait, looking east. The brilliant light and the absence of waves gave this small island just east of Moresby Island an almost "magical" appearance.

Humpback whale sighting

We saw a few whales while we were out on the boat- mostly Orcas (Killer Whales - the dorsal fin was a dead giveaway).

Here we spotted a Humpback what about to do a deep dive - here it is doing the classic tail flip as it heads into deep water.

Hotspring Island (Gandla'kin)

Hotspring Island (Gandla'kin) is a small island just off of Moresby Island. Three pools of hot water were a great place to soak our weary bones. It was also the first shower / bath we had in four days...

This is the middle ("coolest") pool

Hotspring Island (Gandla'kin)

This is the topmost (hot) pool.
