It’s so much warmer here! 😉
As I write this, it is our third night at the dock in Comox. Tomorrow we’ll be on our way, and it’s been a fun visit. We managed to connect with a couple of friends from Vancouver – one who had moved here recently, and another who (by chance) was passing through. The reason we Continue Reading

After repairing our engine mounts in Shearwater/Bella Bella, we decided to venture north again, but more towards the interior this time, first spending a couple of nights in Troup Narrows, highlighted by a young bear who visited the nearby beach both days.
