We returned to Larry & Judy from a great time in Ucluelet. Richard, a neighbour and friend invited us to go fishing on the Sound which runs out to the Pacific. The salmon were apparently starting to run. A 6am start saw us down at the harbour and setting out on Richards fishing boat. He's a professional captain who normally single crews a 45ft fishing vessel catching salmon, tuna, halibut, crab and oysters. Unfortunately, like the rest of the flotilla on the water on Saturday morning we trolled up and down without catching a single fish. Never mind we had a nice morning anyway. The weather was still fabulous so in the afternoon we were all happy to go river tubing down the Sommos river with Sue, L&J's good friend and tenant. A very relaxing 4 ... read more

August 31, 2013 – North Vancouver to Clearwater, BC Arrived in Clearwater at around 5pm this evening after a rather long drive (about 6 hours) from North Vancouver. The weather was good and the drive, beautiful, but it was longer than expected thanks to nightmare traffic around the Langley area. Probably partly due to the inevitable summer road works and partly it being Labour Day weekend and no doubt for a lot of people, a last chance getaway before school begins next week. Gradually the traffic eased as we got further away from Greater Vancouver and the rest of the way was easy driving.
