August 7th - Albert Head to Witty's lagoon (#43)

Gordin and I set out from Albert Head lagoon and paddled leisurely along the shoreline to Witty’s lagoon for lunch and back. We explored the shoreline and saw a bunch of kelp which seemed to be suffering from something – many heads had no fronds and were bleached and almost eaten-looking on one side. I also enjoyed seeing all the pillow basalt lava close up and from the ocean. We also had a nice chat with an American couple who were just finishing up a year long sailing trip from Seattle to Mexico to Hawaii and back. Lots of seals with pups along the shore. The weather was grey but quite calm.
