I just got home from a month of guiding and exploring in the Great Bear Rainforest aboard the good sailboats the Island Roamer and Island Odyssey.
We endured some truly harrowing weather this fall with hurricane force winds and near-monsoonal rains. Nonetheless, watching grizzlies and spirit bears devouring salmon, pacific white sided dolphins racing away from transient orcas, humpback whales erupting from the ocean’s skin and so much more, made up for the cold and wet.
After soaking ourselves with rain, we lounged in hot springs, ate fresh seafood and stayed warm with hot tea and good company. It has been nearly a decade that I’ve been guiding on the raincoast and I just cannot seem to get enough of the place. It simply refuses to be anything but epic.
Now that I’m back home I am looking forward to doing some badly needed updates on this neglected blog, including new photos, a new projects page and other neat stuff. So, check back again soon.
