Airship - Shearwater to Campbell River (with Cape Caution in between)

Airship - Shearwater to Campbell River © Laura Domela

We left Shearwater late morning with perfectly clear skies and calm waters. Today we planned to stop just this side of Cape Caution and then go around in the morning to Skull Cove.

Our destination today was originally Big Fry Pan Bay (since the BC Parks' website says Fury Cove is still closed for anchoring due to Covid, which seems weird, but okay). However, after looking at chart a little more, we thought we'd try a spot just south of Fury Cove, marked "Secure Anchorage" on the chart, which, as it turns out, is accurate. It was beautiful, and a little less tucked back in than Big Fry Pan Bay, which meant a quicker exit in the morning. We dropped the dinghy and went exploring around many of the little islands dotting the shoreline. It's gorgeous in here, and the weather could not have been better.

Another sunny morning as we head for Cape Caution!
