Day 23 – “Rest” Day in Nanaimo

I hate “rest” days. They are anything but. They are stressful and pretty much miserable. Tide was waaay low this morning and the 2 islands New Castle and Protection were actually joined by a sandbar, closing our south passage to Nanaimo. Waited til around noon to paddle over when the tide re-filled the passage. Moored amidst the big ships for our free 3 hours. Walked around and got oriented with town but everything was closed. Bought lettuce and some other fresh veggies and made a sub but it was not quite as fulfilling as I thought it would be. We’ve been eating pretty well so far. Not really craving anything in particular.

Hope you guys are getting good weather! It’s been raining and hailing like crazy here. We went hiking with jim and lynn the other day and saw a moose with 2 babies. It was pretty cool. I bet you are seeing all kinds of wildlife up there. ~Em
