We couldn’t get out of Appleton Cove soon enough after our noisy night with the water slapping the hull. It sounds kind of silly but it can keep you up all night! Billy moved up to the couch in the salon to get away from the worst of the noise. Oh well, we won’t be going back there any time soon.
On the way to Baby Bear Bay we almost ran into a pod of whales bubble feeding. They came up right in front of the boat and scared us both. We got a few pictures as they swam off.
When we got into Baby Bear Bay it couldn’t have been more beautiful and most importantly, calm.
We decided to go for a walk on the beach and as we left for shore I got a picture of Madeline waiting in the sun.
Billy really enjoys walking on the beach and he found himself a nice rock perch for a little rest.
I found a few sea urchins on the walk and posed them for a picture.
On the way back I got the camera out looking for artistic scenes. National Geographic here I come! Here is a shell I found fully intact.
Another urchin ‘au natural’.
And a part of a crab leg missing the rest of the crab.
Of course, when we got back to the dinghy, we were high and dry once again. You’d think we’d learn after doing this almost every day.
We got the boat to the water without too much stress using some driftwood as rollers and were on our way back to Madeline.
When we got back to the boat we found our kingfisher friend once again. They certainly seem to like these parts.
In the morning Billy saw this deer taking a nap on the beach in front of the boat.
Here is another look at Baby Bear Bay before we left. It was a lovely, calm place to anchor. We will be back.
