The weather was looking up by the time we rounded Vancouver Point. I needed to put some sunscreen on by this time. I'm not sure I ever really dried out from the morning rain through the remainder of the trip, but things were looking up. We determined why crossing Vancouver Point at low tide was so important - there were some massive boulders the size of tractors that you could hop across if you were the star of an action movie. But in real life, it would not have been so easy. When the tide is out there is a rock ledge exposed and covered in a not-so-slippery sea weed. (I have no idea how it wasn't slippery.) We could motor across it quite quickly! Then we had to return to the sand beach for the final kilometre to the camp at Walbran Creek.
