We entered Homfrey Channel which is over 2400 feet deep. It is the deepest sounding in coastal North America. The 2400 foot deep water is surrounded by sheer mountains that rise over 8000 feet high. It makes one feel very small and humble to be here.
We spent several nights at Toba Wildernest. Andrea, Rowan and dog Teddy made us feel right at home. Dad/husband Kyle was in Campbell River getting supplies. Rowan is four and what a talker. She took us on a tour of the grounds and told us to be careful of the goose poop. We also got fresh prawns as a welcome gift. Yum !!

Sittin' in the mornin' sun I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the tide roll in And then I watch 'em roll away again
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay Wastin' time Wastin' time
JUST LIKE THE SONG................

Waterfalls. Waterfalls. Waterfalls and more Waterfalls. And the runoff has not started.

Logging is everywhere you turn. Its almost impossible to find a hillside that is not being logged or is just recovering from a recent cut. The loggers live on large boats tucked in bays and commute by helicopter.

The porpoises found us several times during the day and played in the Freyja bow wave. They are so fast and dive under the boat and run along side trying to get Freyja to go faster so they can jump higher. So fun to watch.

Mornings are the favorite times. Mostly very calm water and heavy clouds and fog.
Freyja tucked in safe and sound at Gorge Harbor for a few days. 40-45 knot winds and rain. Think we will just tie up, connect to power, pop some corn and do movies.
