 Justine's Journal

CackleTV Productions


Peril Bay
Thursday, July 12, 2007

Despite the name of the location all is well. Sorry about the lack of information on the blog. I haven't been able to update blog entries because during some server maintenance, the password was inadvertantly reset to an old one. Here's an update on their progress and a couple of photos taken earlier in their journey. Note that Shawna is not getting enough exercise so she does Yoga while on shore.

Tuesday, July 10
Justine called and they are camped near Langara island 2-3 miles from the west coast and ready to head south down the coast tomorrow. Justine, Shawna and Leon are all in good spirits and greatly enjoying their trip. They did about 23 nm on Monday. They are seeing amazing amounts of wildlife and many, many birds while weaving through the kelp beds. Justine said she has never seen so many eagles. They have also seen 2 humpback and some gray whales. Today they ran into 'a bit of a storm' and decided not to head down the west coast in the strong SW winds. So today they are relaxing and washing clothes and bodies. Some fisherman took them in and served them tea in their 'plush digs. They were amazed at the contrast between new and old with a Haida long house remains on the other side of the bay.

Wednesday, July 11
Justine called around 7 pm and all 3 are well. They paddled about 21 nm down the coast to Peril Bay today. She said the west coast is already quite different with the swells being much larger (maybe 3 meters). They are camped on a long beach (you can see it on the satellite photo) and it is a gorgeous misty kind of evening with enough sun to dry things out. They are greatly enjoying their surroundings.
