We are sailing

With Plan A out of the window, we rerouted to Prince Rupert and spent a very pleasurable and relaxing day on a ferry winding our way up the stunning British Columbian coastline.  With glorious weather once the fog had lifted, we had excellent views of a few cetaceans including 5 Humpback Whales and a few Dall's Porpoises and Pacific White-sided Dolphins.

Seabirds too were much in evidence with Cassin's and Rhinoceros Auklets, Ancient Murrelet, White-winged and Surf Scoters, Sooty Shearwaters and an Arctic Skua the highlights.

This trip already has not got to plan so it was probably no surprise when we got back to the van to find the battery was flat, but thankfully the good folk of BC Ferries soon jumped the van and we were back on our way.
