As we walked the dock we passed five day-fishers hauling their catch from the boat to the dock. They caught seven halibut – one of them over 100 pounds (the woman caught the 100 pound fish). They were proud of their catch and we took pictures for them with their cameras. Yesterday they caught 11 halibut. I’m guessing that was a super catch.

In the evening, two orcas ...

We then went to look for Trumpeter Swans and bears at Blind Slough. We did not see any bears or swans. We only saw ducks. Finally we went to Petersburg Creek to walk on a boardwalk through a muskeg out to another area potentially with bears. ...

We got back to the campground and decided to take a "quick" drive out to Nemo point--about ...
