Desolation Sound was the plan but plans change (even more photos with Orca photos ) Here is a bit of an account of my 3 week holiday where I intended to spend most of the time in Desolation sound. As it tuns out I only got to spend a couple of days there. Total trip was 1224 Km and 1543 litres of fuel. So after a late launch at Cates park I headed up Indian Arm to Bedwell harbour in the dark Work up the next morning and found this view out the back of the boat. This is just about 10 Km away from Vancouver. Stayed a couple of days near the bottom end of Texada Island. This is in Scotty bay on Lasqueti island. Then it was off to Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island Then up to octopus islands where there is a great lake for swimming about 4 Km up a trail The weather forecast for the next few days remain good so this is where I decided that I wouldn't spend any more time in Desolation Sound. It was time to head north. I decide that I would tackle Johnstone Strait and head up to Blackfish sound and the Broughtons. Now those of you that know the forecast for Johnstone Strait almost always mentions strong wind warning or gale force winds but the trend over the last few days was calm in the morning and windy lat in the after noon. I decided I would go to forward harbour and see what it was like from there. Since I was by myself there would be no one to complain if it did get rought. First I hade to go through 4 sets of rapids, at hole in the wall, arron rapids and the dents (including a place called devils hole) and finally whirlpool rapids. I wanted to do them all in one go so it meant hittng hole in the wall about half an hour before slack on a flood tide . The destination that day was forward harbour. Got up the next day to a few clouds but calm winds so up Johnstone strait it was. Leaving Sunderland channel looking up Johstone strait . More to follow of the most incredible place I have ever been on a boat.
