Inland Passage 2016

July 7, 2016

This was our wildlife day paddle. Lots of whales were doing antics all day. We would also pass huge flocks of surf scoters. They never would let us get very close so with no large telephoto, one has to be satisifed with the photo below.

 Love their beaks and the sound they make when they fly away.

The day started out quite foggy, but as the day progressed the sun lifted and we were awed by the surrounding mountains.

After a break on this beach and we were back into our kayaks a group of moose came out on the beach and watched us go by.

Next we paddled by some rocks that were covered by a flock of birds that were well camouflaged. We have not identified them yet.

We pulled off on a beach and off in the distance was a whale showing us its fluke.

Quite a few camping sites along this coast. So after paddling another day close to 30 miles we pulled over and set up our tent and kitchen on a somewhat sandy beach.  The wildlife continued with a visit by a porcupine. Glad it decided not to hang out with us.
