My friend and I were in total awe over the seals. We went down on the dock to try to get a picture, but because I had a digital camera we couldn't get a decent one. A man from North Thormanby Island, moored at the dock, came off his yacht and offered us first a great pair of binoculars and then he put his dingy in the water and told us to paddle out to get pictures. We had a riot, the seals were fantastic and we got this awesome picture. His generosity was overwhelming. When we returned with his dingy, his wife invited us in for tea. What a great afternoon of visiting and learning about the local heritage.
There were a ton of memorable moments, but the best was the locals incrediblekindness and willingness to befriend a couple of stranded tourists. BC wannabees, thats what we were by the end of our vacation.
