We had confused seas around Estevan Point and then a run into Hot Springs Cove. Surprisingly we shared the anchorage with only two other boats and after 7:00 pm all the daytime people had left. We had the evenings to ourselves, warm spring water, beautiful sky, a whale and its calf hanging out in front of the spring, eagles flying overhead, need I say more. My aging bones truly loved this stop. The next few stops were Matilda Cove and a hike to White Sand beach, Tofino for dinner, Ucluelet to do laundry and restock the cupboard a little and walk the trail around Amphitrite Point, then off into the Broken Group for a couple of days. One theme that started once we rounded Estevan was fog, at times very thick, the radar came in handy! Also the temperature dropped – burr almost had to find the woolies.
