In the morning we always have a sunrise from the front deck it is just that most mornings the low-lying marine clouds make it hard to see. This cloud cover is gone before noon providing good light for photos. This photo was a quick snap from my camera as coffee was just being served and guests were on the deck needing room from their own “photo ops”.
These two photos show the massive amount of driftwood in the water last summer after the slides up Knight Inlet. One night after a three-month rainless period there were heavy rains and over a dozen slides that stripped mountainsides down to bare rock. The result is that it suddenly took up to two hours to make an hour and fifteen-minute trip to view grizzly bears. There was never any danger of large waves because of the slide as Knight Inlet is close to 145 km (90 miles) long and in places over a mile wide and even the shore opposite the slides looked normal in the morning. The drift covered the beaches for months and can be seen in yesterday’s posting.
