Talos IV departed mid day headed to
for provisioning. This is expected to be the last major stop for groceries and boat supplies prior to heading north. The passage was uneventful, winds being light and with the current. Campbell River is a sport fisherman paradise….and there was plenty of fishing at Mudge Point as we rounded. The Salmon are running. Campbell River
We found a side tie at Discovery Marina and had a pleasant surprise discovering a Starbucks at the top of the marina ramp. Grocery shopping was put on hold until later.
It is hard to describe to family and friends the challenge of provisioning. It took us well into the night to purchase and stow the mass quantity of goods for the next leg of our adventure. Talos IV seems to swallow up the unending flow of stuff we seem to need or want. Everything is now packed safely. I am glad we have a good refrigerator. Tomorrow we are planning to check out another chandlery and maybe make a trip into town.
We are now having to passage plan several days in advance. We have several sets of rapids to go thru as we progress north. Departure will need to favor the proper currents and conditions.
