Bubble feeding is when a group of sea mammals corral sea food by working together to create a tall cylinder of bubbles. We saw 4 seals doing it in the Broughtons but Humpbacks are the kings of this sport when they create the corral and then fling their tonnes of body mass up out of the water, mouths wide open. Despite only two, they put on quite a show for about a half hour right beside our seemly tiny sailboat. Spectacular!
We'd heard Roscoe Inlet was a neat place with warm water for swimming. Neat didn't do it justice. Envision a place never touched by man surrounded by 3000 foot granite domes and 27 degree (yes in Celsius) clear fresh water over the salt.
Sure, every paradise must have its vices and there were "a few" horse flies around but this brought back fond memories of Ontario. We simply put Charlotte out on deck as bait and she kept them at bay (how many flies can a beagle swallow before she dies?).

The next morning we awoke to the pitter patter of rain drops on our hatch..... For the next two days it rained and rained and rained and rained. It then rained some more. We've been pretty lucky on our trip with regards to weather so far and I guess the gods decided we`d had it good enough. The good news is the rain pointed out some good areas in the deck that need sealing and reminded us what happens when water meets electricity. Even better news is we were able to dry out our fridge controller and didn't have to feed all of our frozen meat to the crabs.
