Two weeks ago today we returned to the beautiful archipelago for our third time. We arrived in the morning to a vale of mist covering the tiny islands and the ocean that surrounded them. Seagulls trying to land on something in the water, I couldn’t quite make out scattered by the emergence of what I thought was a fin, but who knows it was foggy and the boat kept moving towards our destination regardless of what I thought to be rather fascinating scenario in the waters behind us. Binoculars I thought to myself, binoculars are a must have to keep on my person at all times while I’m here. I wonder if I can find a tiny pair of pink, pocket ones.
but found ourselves marveling at the amazing birds that stood beside the Bald Eagles towering over them. Brent found himself mentally mapping all the places that would be fun to search for
We had been bitten by The Island Bug.
It’s hard to say exactly what calls us to the island, was it the Spirit bear that Brent came to visit Brent our first trip or the amazing feeling of being surrounded by the majesty of the Pacific Ocean? We’ll never know for sure but what we do know is the longer were there the more we love it.
Every new day brings a new discovery, so many things to see and explore. The first two trips I found myself looking at the greatness of the giant ocean and the huge mountains that meet its edge.
This last trip I found myself exhausted on the beach from all the travel I’ve been through lately. Laying down I was hoping to catch a little nap while Brent played in the ocean with his crab net but I found myself marveling at the tiny wonders of Haida Gwaii that were dispersed across the great beach.
There’s so much more for us to do and see it’s going to take a lifetime, and I can hardly wait!
