... Once the essentials (cough) had been purchased, we drove about 45 minutes to SPL. I said hello to several lovely people and then was shown to my waterfront accommodation. I was speechless at the view; imposing mountains and a glistening lake. I will attach a few photos so y'all can see. It probably won't do it justice though! The lodge is a fantastic place and filled with very enthusiastic, nature-loving characters. Schoolchildren arrive on a Monday and ...
Spent day 34 travelling by bus to Campbell River. Started watching the first series of Prison Break to make the journey go faster - oh dear god, the acting and plot is shocking!

... The line we had been using to tow the dinghy with was wrapped completely around the propeller and we were in a strong current against us. At this point I’m honestly surprised I didn’t get chucked in the water. The Captain has only a few “nightmares” that I can think of… Reilly getting hurt, one of his kids getting hurt, and the boat dying in the middle of nowhere due to a line being twisted around the propeller.
