Down Day in Tweedsmuir Park

We were hoping to take a spectacular plane ride, but it's raining.
We decided to have a down day, or at least a down morning.

We spent a lot of time on the road. Whister, D'Arcy [a mistake], Pemberton, Lillooet,  Clinton, 100 Mile House, Williams Lake, Riske Creek, Anahim, Stuie, Bella Coola. This is our first day of not going anywhere.

A fire in the fireplace is going behind me. We are in a lodge. It feels good to relax.

Yesterday we took a float raft on the Bella Coola River for 4 hours. Sublimely lovely.

Well, those photos took 1/2 hour to load sitting in the lodge!!

Tomorrow by ferry -- 14 hours-- to Port Hardy.

[P.S. from back in Vancouver: I managed to leave my good camera battery & charger at the Lodge.
It will take many days to find its way back to me in the mail: to Bella Coola where mail goes to Williams Lake twice a week, then, after a few days, released into the real mail system. It'll take at least 2 weeks en route! ]

That's all for now.
