Cruised into Powell River

Landed in Powell River this afternoon. We have had some longer mileage days since leaving Nanaimo even with strong headwinds out of the northwest and the current against us! We found an awesome little campsite called sunshine cove on Jedediah island, thank goodness, because it was a long 7 mile open water crossing in 15 to 20k wind! Had a nice treat at Harwood point campsite. There was a food truck there and we ate a giant burger and fries but no beer! There was ice cream which Kelly was happy about. Yesterday was a super fun water day. Got a late start because we only planned to paddle around 8 miles to this one site, but we finally had a tailwind of around 20k and even with an ebb for most of the day we got a huge push and some really fun 3 to 4 foot rollers to surf. Ended up paddling 16 miles around to the northeast tip of Texada island which made for a short paddle into Powell River today. Looking forward to paddling in Desolation Sound over the next few days :)

  1. Sounds like a great trip so far ladies. Had dinner and beers ready for you at Bere Point on Malcolm Island but I guess you had not made it that far!! Safe Travels to you both.

    • Hey Frank! Yea we didn’t quite make it but we thought of you as we paddled by Malcom Island yesterday! Should be in Port Hardy today. We hate it we missed out :)
