Port Hardy – Day Two

We’re spending our second day in Port Hardy, BC.   This morning we went out to the airport to pick up a rental car so that Alan can get himself to the airport on time tomorrow morning.  While we were at the airport I saw a Grumman Goose.  I hadn’t seen one of them since I was a kid in Ketchikan.

On the way  home from the airport we stopped by the Welcome to Port Hardy sign and got a friendly Port Hardian to take our picture.

After lunch we went in search of the Port Hardy Curling Club.  We found the friendly caretaker who informed us that curling is a winter sport but he let us go look at the facility and told us a little about it.

When we returned to the boat after grocery shopping we had a new neighbor.

They’re really big but not terribly friendly.  We found a really big boat for sale up in the parking lot but decided against it and are sticking with Madeline.

Our friend Alan, who has spent the last two weeks with us, is leaving tomorrow morning to go back home. 😦  We have really enjoyed our time with Alan, I have really appreciated his getting up early in the morning to help with our departures as well as with docking and general chores.  It’s always nice to have an extra hand. We will miss Alan!

Tomorrow we will be leaving Vancouver Island and heading out into Queen Charlotte Sound.  We probably won’t have internet connectivity for a few days so if you don’t hear from us, don’t be surprised.  We’ll try to keep track of what we’re up to and have a post ready as soon as we can find a wi-fi connection.  Wish us luck with the weather and we’ll be in touch…
