We started out walking and saw blackberries along the road. I jumped the ditch and had to hold onto the bushes while picking. Then the bushes broke and released me to fall in the ditch and mud of course. We went back to the boat to change. Once Judy realized I didn’t get hurt we thought it was pretty funny with all the mud on the pants and shoes. We went to most of the Galleries in town and fish lure shops. Then took a 5 km hike on the Wild Pacific Trail they have here. It was really good. Nice trail, great views from the trail to the ocean. Kind of the reverse view from the boat to shore. But, this time the surf was way down as the wind was almost calm. Still highly recommended. We saw a whale from shore and it did ½ jump once also. Stopped by the BMX and skateboard park and watched the kids jumping and such. Then a short walk to the boat. I headed to the gas station with a tank in my pack with the bike to get propane, only $8.50 for 10 pound size instead of $13.50 plus in the hinterland up north which is a good deal considering the pack in expense. Weather was sunny, warm and pleasant today with winds calm.
