Klemtu, Butedale, Bishop Bay Hot Springs

Friday May 27th – Saturday May 28th http://gallery.me.com/sundogjoe/100679 Well this is something that I could never do with the C-Dory,  I am typing and driving as we leave Bishop Bay Hot Springs and on our way to Hartley Bay.  Of course I am constantly lifting my eyes and tweaking the wheel to stay on course […]

Shoal Bay – After Yaculta and Dent Rapids

Will write more later if I can get online but we are in Shoal bay tied up with our partners the Wandrian as they work through getting their water pump working.  The rapids were mostly uneventful as we timed the tide right but as we went through the end of the Dent rapids it started […]
