The next few days were rainy ones, but we still had fun exploring the calmer inland waters.
We were able to drink directly from the clean stream water, but it was distinctly tea colored!
Low tide was always fun to explore.
Food had to be bagged and hung from trees each night — to protect it from bears and other animals
Speaking of bears, we had one visit us at our campsite the second night! Our fearless guide Gord convinced it to head into the woods instead of walking through our camp.

Preparing fishing gear
A day-trip kayaking to a beautiful marshy area at the north end of Rose Inlet that was only accessible at high tide.
Here, underwater in Sedmond Creek, were the faintest of remains of a native salmon fish trap from a century ago.
Back at camp
More evidence of bears
A day trip to mossiest rainforest ever! (Just east of Kendrick Point)
The eddies of the stream collected pockets of white foam on the tea-colored water.
On the beach, we picked up a couple choice kelps to make our own Didgeridoos.

Slow time at camp — reading, napping, making art, and eating. The sun was beginning to appear — tomorrow would be a beautiful day!
