The Quintessential Princess Louisa Inlet Day

The Quintessential Princess Louisa Inlet Day


 We woke and looked out of our boat to see the floating debris field far away, seals around the boat, fish jumping and a warm sunny morning.  DSC_0472We choose to stay another day and leave tomorrow (Sunday).


Because of our position on the east side of PLI we don’t get the sun until around 10 AM and because of the clear evening in was a bit cool.  So after our usual breakfast we decided to take the True Love tender on an adventure out of PLI through the rapids and into Queens Reach and the end of the inlet.  We trolled slowly out PLI soaking in all the beauty of the steep sides covered with so many shades of green sparkling in the sun.

I’ve been practicing with the video on my new Nikon so we took film of the rapids on our way out to Queens Reach, even setting up the tripod on the tender and we zoomed through.  Unfortunately, we were near slack tide and the rapids were extremely calm.  But I’m learning more about the intricacies of the D600.

DSC_0532The Captain having grown up playing in small boats around Lake Sammamish beamed with the confidence of a young man while maneuvering the tender.

We took some beautiful photos today, ate well, tanned ourselves in the warm sun, swam in the healing salt waters and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company.  Tomorrow we head out to Lund on our way to April Point on Monday.  That’s where we’ll reenter civilization with all it’s connections and trappings, including the internet connection needed to post this blog.

Enjoy the photos from our beautiful day in and around Princess Louisa Inlet!

  1. Wonderful reporting and fine photos too. Waterfalls and wild life can make ones day.
    I read the post in chronological order to share in the continuing saga.
