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.

  22. 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!
