Dan, Rob, George and I went for a morning paddle around the Islands and had an outstanding paddle. Conditions were overcast, slightly drizzly, but mostly calm which made for very comfortable paddling. The real fun began when I spotted a small group of humpbacks out in Haro Strait off Seabird Point. As we were watching the whales we heard some low barking and turned around to see the wolf on a bare knoll behind us. He watched us, howled at us (or the world?) and followed us along the shore for a short while. I feel sorry for him. It must be especially lonely now that people cannot visit the park. I almost felt like he was calling us for company's sake!
