We awoke at 4 to waves crashing on the beach. No early departure for us today as the forecast is predicting a strong wind. Looks like we will take advantage of this and catch up on some reading and admire the plants in the area.
The flowers are starting to bloom and we also were lucky enough to find some salmon berries. I am studying the trees and learning about the different cones that they have.
The flowers are beginning to add color to the forest.
Since we are near a town, we are able to get internet on our cell phone. We check to see if our food boxes have made it to their destinations and are relieved when they have. As we look out towards the ocean , there is a calming of the water. Perhaps we can take off after all. Our only problem is that the tide has gone out and instead of a sandy beach we are now staring at a rocky beach.
The afternoon is a major contrast to the morning wind and waves. The sea is calm and we can see Powell River in the distance.
A late evening as we find a small beach to make camp. We are glad that it did not rain or the wind blow. Tomorrow we look forward to stopping at Lund to visit the bakery.
