Just ridiculous

Thursday 28th July. By Paul.

We paddled into a campsite at the entrance to Muir sound and set up the tent in fine weather for a change. It was set between two bays with awesome views and had an elevated rocky point to boot. A pair of bald eagles flew about us and called to each other. A mob of seagulls sat on the water above some fish taking it in turns to dart in and nab one. Sea otters walked along the rocky shore while harbour porpoises swam along the coast. Suddenly the seagulls panicked as a humpback whale breached the water through all the fish they were catching. The next day a black bear walking along the beach made us rush our coffee, pack up and leave the area. It was just a ridiculous amount of wildlife to have around one campsite.

Our first blog, five star tent, was a six month project in parallel with a journey on foot and by kayak from Alaska to Patagonia. Now back to real life, Jodie is inspired to start blogging again, just a little bit, with photo theme hop.
