Hakai Beach


June 1, 2007
Time 0845
Log: 2813.8 nm Hrs: 765
Lv: Big Frypan Bay
Course: Klaquaek Channel > Fitz Hugh Sound > Kwakshua Channel > Pruth Bay, Calvert Island

We just finished getting the anchor up and I noticed that Bonnie and Gerod’s boat was sitting on the rocks! I motioned to Jerry to have a look and all of a sudden, thump, we hit a rock with the bulb on our keel! Fortunately we were barely inching forward and no damage was done, but looks like the others will have to wait for the tide to come in to go anywhere. We very slowly motored to where we put the prawn trap down, pulled it up and it was loaded with prawns, but most were too small to bother with. We picked out the big ones, and hoped that our luck had changed for the day.
Just as we got into Fitz Hugh Sound, we spotted a very large school, we estimate about 200 to 300, of Pacific White Sided Dolphins feeding. We slowed down to watch for a few minutes. Sooo cool!

After settling in, we got in the dingy for a short trip to the shore. There is a trail leading to the west side of the island and a beautiful sandy beach. The weather was great, but not quite warm enough for a swim but I am tempted. We took our shoes off anyway and walked in the surf and relaxed in the sand and sun. This is such a beautiful beach! I love the west coast.

that is one beautiful slab of rock in the picture, Kathy...it would make a great texture in a painting or collage.

I've been following your amazing journey and haven't left a comment yet. I decided to do just that today.
I feel like I'm on this journey with you. It is incredible and the scenery is absolutely magnificent.
Who knows..maybe I'm Prince Charles.
Have a wonderful time.
Love, Aunta Jeanie
