Day 4 - Thursday
We awoke to more rain, and now fog. Around breakfast, and after a call home to verify ferry times, we came to the realization that if we left for Toquart Bay this morning we could make the 1900 Coho back to Victoria. We all decided this was a much better prospect than breaking camp, and reassembling a bunch of wet gear at Toquart Bay.
So, we set about breaking down camp. After getting everything back in the boats (or wodded and shoved in some cases) we set out in the fog. Visibility was somewhere around a mile, but I was certainly glad I had my trusty GPS for the long crossing to the Stopper Islands.
We covered the distance in just a tick over two hours, and quickly loaded our wet gear and we bodies into Gerry's Subaru for the four hour trip back to Victoria to catch the Coho.
For those who weren't keeping score along the way the total distance paddled was just over 50 miles. Not a huge distance for four days, but around shade under 15 a day for the three we paddled.
Despite the weather, it was a great trip and I'm ready to do it again. There were some places we didn't make it to, and I can't wait to go back.
