Message in a Bottle - Discovery Passage

Saturday afternoon. We are sitting at the dock waiting for the tide to turn so we can set off on a little adventure in the wilderness. We are in Campbell River and heading north through Discovery Passage. I’m composing this post on my phone and finding it a bit cumbersome. 


I wanted these photos to show up in the opposite order, but my technology skills are challenged. Isn’t this driftwood wildcat well done? We took a long walk this afternoon along the water. Clouds  fill the sky and it’s a bit windy, but the locals say the passage will
be fine.  


Being able to town the boat behind Tim’s Tahoe means we can get to places faster than boating all the way. Tim stops every so often to check the temperature of the axles and during one stop I noticed this pretty clump of daisies beside the abandoned rail track. 

We will be out of cell range for much of our trip, but if we do have coverage I’ll send a quick “message in a bottle”.  

And I’ll look forward to reading your posts when we return.

It sounds like a great adventure. Enjoy!

That driftwood creature is quite good. Imagine the time it took to complete. Time well spent for sure.

The cat is well done, and a scary snarl there. The daisies and old railroad tracks is a thoughtful photo.I hope your trip is pleasant.

Enjoy your trip. The daisies are not yet in bloom here but I like them they make a background to the roses.

This is such a wonderful time of year to spend outside, isn't it? I enjoyed coming out with you and seeing the views, though I wouldn't like to meet that driftwood wildcat after dark.

Good morning, Lorrie. You do live in such an amazing part of the world. I do love the driftwood wildcat - but he does look a bit scary. Hope your trip was the best.

I'm impressed you were able to post on your phone. Have a fun and safe trip! Looking forward to hearing about it when you return.

Lorrie - enjoy your trip. I, too, am impressed you created this post on your phone. I barely like texting, and will wait to email people until I have my laptop. It's the reason I don't do Instagram ... call me old-fashioned!

Mary said...

Have a fabulous trip dear Lorrie and Tim. Know you will enjoy much along the way and hope the weather cooperates for fine sailing!
Stay safe - have fun.
