Going down valley to Bella Coola & the ferry I had some favorite things. This is a memorial to a Bella Coola fisherman
& an unusual pole in Bella Coola.
Out of business business. Poignant. There is a big story, no doubt.
The ferry ride was 14 hours, 2 of it in open water. Thanks dramamine! It was sunny & geographically spacious.At first there were native fishermen with wide nets.
Then there was the drama of an evacuated fishing boat on fire. In Port Hardy we were joined by Alan Thompson, George's brother, & Michael Martin, their cousin, & his wife Laura.
Michael took a wee kip while the car was fetched, so we could go back for another beer at the Scarlet Ibis.
Logging operation across the bay. It was a long drive over dusty roads. I was disappointed not to see the sublime beach called San Joseph. We didn't try again. Maybe next time.
