I love it up there. Was up there last August. Actualy I love the west side of Vancouver island.

Ran up there outa the North arm of the Fraser River. But not in a trawler. Took just over 8 hours from the dock here to Cape beal. Wow what a ride.

A few pics

Rounding Race rocks.

Running along the west coast north of renfrew. Conditions just dont get much better out here.

Cape beal in just a bit of fog. Humpback wales playing under the light house. I could do with a better camera however.
