Crossing The River Jordan

The first seaplane took off from in front of our condo at 7:45 yesterday. Then it was nonstop for 2-3 hours. A busy airport. After a leisurely morning we explored the west coast a bit, driving to Sooke and up to Port Renfrew. Once past Sooke this is wilderness with scattered inhabitants. Lots of logging. This coast is also home to one of the most remote hiking trails in North America. The coastal trail begins rather benignly, following the shore between the ocean and the road. However, north of Port Renfrew there is no road and only access by sea. The way is rocky and many headlands can only be gotten around a low tide. Port Renfrew is a small village at the end of the road – one store, one coffee shop, two restaurants, a couple of B&B’s, and two hotels. No gas station. The scenery there is beautiful with ocean shore, giant trees, misty rivers, and the harbor.

Today we explored the city. More on that later. We still are experiencing computer connectivity problems.
