Calm after the storm

Diane left a little Andy Goldsworthy sculpture for the ravens as we left Murchison Island for Windy Bay.  Had a little "yee haw" ride out in the waves but near shore it was smooth kayak'in. We stopped for lunch at Windy Bay, the spot on Lyell Island where the Haida made their stand about no more logging of these southern islands.  It was the beginning of Gwaii Haanas Park when Canada and the big logging companies (US and Canadian) finally paid attention to the movement to save this "place of wonder" for posterity....we are awfully glad they did!  Last stop is Kunga Island just across from Tanu village site.
