This sequence of photos was memorable as it shows that “luck” plays an important part in making a day memorable for guests.  We were on our way back to the lodge from whale watching in the area of Johnstone Strait our boat containing myself and the Edourad family from France was a little slower than the other lodge boat by about five minutes.  We came to a small passage between a series of islands in Beware Passage to find a black bear swimming. It was coming to the first small island and passed through the kelp bed along the shore without a problem.  It climbed up the shore shook off the excess water and crossed over to the back of the island….. see tomorrow’s post
