The sea is greener, the air smells different, and we are starting to see more signs of life. We have yet to come in sight of land, but should be able to see the light on Cape Scott tonight. I was hoping to have the grand moment of Land Ahoy! today, but life doesn’t always work like that does it? Regardless, we are itching to get off the boat and our view in the morning is going to be a sight for sore eyes! We ended up coming as far as 51 degrees north, due to consistent winds that pushed us up here. We will still have three days of travel to get down to Comox once we round Cape Scott but it already feels like we are home.
I was holding off writing this post until we saw some whales, but couldn’t wait any longer. I ended up spotting two spouts today from a distance but given that I was the only one to spot them, I’m starting to wonder if my brain is tricking me. Just like I sear I saw Santa when I was little. Believing is seeing? 😉
