In August and September 2019 my wife and I enjoyed 10 days of seakayaking on the Coast of British Columbia. It was an area we have visited in the past, known as God’s Pocket. A remote group of islands a short distance north of the north end of Vancouver Island. The lore of the area says the name comes from the idea that if you have made it there through some notorious big water, you were safe in God's Pocket. I started out our trip with a little repair work on the tailgate in the line waiting for the ferry. A little needle and thread to replace a button. I keep a pretty well stocked repair kit on these trips. After a couple days of travel, we got to our launch site. Everything packed and ready to go! We were paddling 2 wooden singles that we built a few years ago. It's funny, but the more I look at this picture, the more it looks like the kayak in the foreground was photoshopped in. I know it wasn't, but something about the lighting and shadow look funny. We had some nice weather for paddling much of the time. Most of the coastline in this area is very rocky and usable landing spots are relatively rare. You always keep an awareness of the closest landable place. There are extensive patches of bull kelp here, a marine algae that can grow a foot a day in the summer. Good places to fish for cod. Here's a lunch stop on a pretty little beach. Our first camp. Got a little rain that night. BCO Tarp kept us dry for cooking. This was a more relaxed trip for us,fewer miles, more layovers and a good bit of time just chilling out in beautiful places. We felt a little sluggish at times. We had good company- lots of big banana slugs More to come.
