Day 4

Woke up early – not sleeping great but at least not cold! We inflated one of the inflatable kayaks and all set off to collect sea asparagus.

this was right before we were boarded by the state trooper and got a ticket for too many rods in the water πŸ™ we were not successful catching a salmon – we moved to cackle point to try for halibut or rock fish πŸ™ We made it through Sturgess Narrows at slack tide and went to Deep Bay to try our luck at crab.

fuel filling hi jinx πŸ˜‰ After emptying the bladders then I had to deal with my water soaked bed – which was tricky in the coffin bunk πŸ™ Β the fooler (freezer) leaked all over it ended up taping a garbage bag over the entrance to hopefully avoid further catastrophy Β πŸ™
