McCallum. It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster ride since this trip started on July 3rd. A capsize on the second day (no worries, I hit my roll 1st time), which shook my confidence a bit. Then a really rough sea day on the 13th when I wasn’t sure if I’d get to our Red Island destination. I was considering taking the ferry from Francois and letting Nancy go on alone after the email from Richard Alexander! But the ferry didn’t leave until tomorrow- Thursday- so I’d have to hang around Francois for 3 days! Anyway, the weather forecast was favorable so I decided to paddle. I don’t know when it happened but on Monday as we left Francois my “Sea-Legs” finally kicked in and its been great paddling all the way into McCallum. We had to pull into a cove on Monday instead of getting further down the coast as planned, but what a surprise. The camp site at Cul de Sac Cove was our prettiest yet with a spectacular waterfall to boot! Weather held us there for a day and there was fog and thunderstorms forecast early this morning so we left a bit later than usual. As we paddled out the fog burned off, the sun came out and we had a gentle westerly breeze pushing us all the way to McCallum. Gread days paddle. BFN
