|We head up Wells Passage and this many-peaked mountain is peeking through the clouds. |
We learned later that it is Mt. Stephens, but it remains 'the pokey mountain' to us.
Five days later, this is the best shot I will have of it.
|Next day, we head down dramatic Kenneth Passage. The current creates whirlpools and boils in the water, and the foggy/rainy mountains remind us of the Columbia River Gorge.|
|We enter Mackenzie Sound and turn right, and I look back at the sheer granite wall of Annie Point, and see 'the pokey mountain' through the rain.|
|Burly Bay has its own granite wall. We are hopeful for bear on the beach, but we don't see any, and we haven't even seen many birds. And we had thought the forecast had only talked of one night of rain. Nope.|
|The guest cottages|
|Kitchen/dining room/communal area?|
|There are even tail-wagging greeters! There was a third, but he lost interest before these two.|
|Appears to be staff accommodations.|
DO check out their webpage. This is a VERY luxury resort, but they will welcome boats, with reservations. Being quite frugal, we didn't plan to stay. But wow! You can arrive/depart by helicopter! We think THAT trip may be worth the price....http://nimmobay.com/packages/welcome-boaters/
Next big destination is Sullivan Bay where we will be getting a few groceries and practicing our people skills again. How soon we get there depends on the weather.
