The night before last... He thought his tent was going to be blown away while he was in it. Amazing winds he said...
Physically, he is doing okay. He is having normal back aches and pains. Mostly, his left heel is killing him. He says it is from bracing so much during the choppy seas of the "Graveyard of the Pacific." It is really bruised and difficult to paddle and walk on.
On the brighter side, I shared with Sean all of the blog inputs, emails, and phone calls that I have received. He also shared a cute story with me once he arrived in Victoria. He had a man greet him by kayak. "Are you Sean Morley?" Sean replied, "yes." The nice French-Canadian man and his daughter took him out for dinner and let him stay in their home on the beach. Another cute story was the next morning a group of school kids ran down to the beach and cheered him on. They are following his progress from school.
My conclusion is although the weather and conditions have been challenging and unfavorable... the people and scenery he has seen has been remarkable. I mean how many times does somebody meet and greet you in the water, take you out for dinner, and provide a nice warm bed for you???!!!*** Not in my lifetime. And I have been on some pretty extreme kayak trips.
Counting down the days Sean. Get home soon!
