LOL!! I reported the defective door (whadda’ butthead, I know!). ...
Made it to Port Hardy where Bear Cove Cottages lived up to its name - we saw a gorgeous black bear cross the road! Also visited a salmon hatchery where the baby salmon nibble on your fingers. To bed early all my little children as we have to wake you up at 5am tomorrow! The ferry calls...though not sure why you have to be there TWO hours before it ...
