It was all worth it, we saw whales breaching, harbor seals, sea otters, one lone river otter, and bald eagles on every tree. I loved the rhythm of kayaking, it was a great way to travel. Here are a few photos of what turned out to be an amazing trip.

|Kathy and Scott - open water crossing to get to our final destination - Whale Bay. I was very out of my comfort zone here and was colder and wetter than I have ever been in my life.

|Heaven on earth, our campsite on Whale Bay.
|While cooking dinner at our camp in Whale Bay, humpbacks would cruise by camp. One night a whale did a series of breaches across the bay while we drank wine and ate dinner.

|When the sun came out, the trip was glorios.
