Qci

The ultimate side trip.I tie down the bike in the hold, and the boat will not depart for another hour.I grab my tent and bring it up on deck to dry out.The dew was extremely heavy this morning but a good breeze on the deck allows me to dry my tent out.I had it tied to the railing for a while up there.I re-fold it up and bring it back down to the bike and at 11am we are off.



The white peaks in the above photo are where the Cassier 37 runs north/south.Six or seven hours later we arrive in Skidegate.

I ride into Queen Charlotte city and the tourist info place is open.I found out a few things about the Islands and grabbed some pamphlets with maps in them.I also got a tide table, this would come in handy later.It was really foggy and kinda drizzling, getting late in the day.i rode north on the Yellowhead hwy and began looking for a good spot to sleep tonight.Not far up the hwy I pulled into a side road and set up my tent beside the ocean.
