Port Gore to French Pass
We woke to a big rough sea and nasty wind so went for a good long walk. We set of for French Pass at 1 p.m. It was quite rough near Cape Jackson but the wind died and we had a good current to help us on our way. The southeasterly arrived and blew us along and we checked out the caves at Cape Lambert. A seal became caught between my kayak and the cliff and jumped right over the kayak in its bid for freedom. We stopped at Alligator Head for a late lunch, prepared by Mel, where a cheeky weka stole one of my sunpaws. I will need to use lots of sunscreen to stop that hand from getting sunburnt. We were really happy to arrive at French Pass at 9 p.m., a very successful day after such a late start. We have picked up a good forecast on CH22, so hope to paddle through the pass tomorrow morning. We are settled in the DOC campground, dry weather and no wind!!
