Princess Louisa Inlet:
Every time I enter PLI I’m struck by a different sense. The first time it was the overwhelming grandeur. This time it was the pure, clean, fresh smell in the air. We entered the rapids at the end of a perfect cruise down Jervis Inlet. When we approached our favorite anchorage it was clear of any other boats. We arrived at high tide and anchored and attached our stern tie with ease. From our anchorage we are graced with the sounds and site of two waterfalls with a perfect view of Chatterbox falls in the distance.
Yesterday was as perfect as it gets in Princess Louisa Inlet. We slept well and woke up to a glorious sunny day. We entered our day slowly listening to the stereo sounds of the waterfalls surrounding our anchorage, reading and enjoying our usual elixir breakfast. The captain/barista made us wonderful coffee and he enjoyed his cinnamon role the First Mate had stocked for just this occasion.
I did my Gyro/Yoga stretches on the bow of the True Love listening to the soothing sounds of the waterfalls. We spotted a mother seal and her pup about 100 feet off the bow of the boat. The pup was very small and couldn’t have been more than a week old.
Then we went for a swim. The water is cool, about 67 degrees, but healing. We floated, played and swam until we were hungry for lunch. I grilled some tofu and we enjoyed a beautiful fresh salad with Avocados, blueberries, radishes and sunflower seeds.
Then we went for a wonderful long kayak around the bay enjoying the views from the other side of our anchorage. All that kayaking made us hungry again. I grilled chicken, zucchini and mushrooms to toss in with rice noodles and spicy sauce. Yum.
The evening brought some clouds and some unusual wind, but no rain. We read our books until we couldn’t keep our eyes open and slept soundly once more.
