Jon,
Thanks for the nice complements. I'll be watching for posts of your upcoming trips on 3meterswell. Very nice site by the way.

You're right, I lucked out and had very good conditions for the three days it took me to get from Port Hardy to Smith Sound. Mother nature paid me back later on the trip with days of continuous bad weather.

The islands in Queen Charlotte Strait that you saw were the Deserters and the Gordon Islands. I didn't spend much time doing any sight seeing amongst them as I wanted to get across QCS while the weather held.

I can't say what the current was doing in Slingsby Channel as I passed. It must have been slack as I didn't notice any current at all.

You know, I can't say why I camped on the sand at Red Sand Beach instead of up in the trees. Maybe because when I camped in the trees at Shelter Bay the bugs were so bad I thought the beach would be better. I do remember it being a pain in the butt to clean the sand off everything in the morning as I packed up. I don't think I camped on another sand beach for the rest of the trip.

The three bears photo was taken in Rivers Inlet from the dock at Duncanby Landing. I never saw anything like it during the remainder of my trip. Just lucky to be in the right place at the right time.

I'll be watching for photos of your trips.
