Sept 24-28 - Vargas Island (#s58-61)

JF and I led a group of grade 11 students on a kayak trip around Vargas Island. Day 1 was too windy and wet to launch, so we spent our first night at Surf Junction camp, where we did a shoret trip to watch surf at Amphitrite Point and also to watch bears at a fish hatchery. After the night’s weather blew though we had decent, though not dry weather throughout the rtest of the trip. We had a great group of students with us and we covered a good distance. We saw whales twice and one sea otter. Lots of sea birds – loons catching fish, groups of surf scoters and black turnstones and many others. We had great camping at South Ahous, Dick andf Jane’s and Rassier point.
