its hot now with warm water. give it a few weeks and it will be hotter out with hot water. thats the thing about here. the winters are nice but the summers will kill you.

Here you go,Daren..I'm not too knowledgable about seaweed names unless it's from China or Hawaii and the wife is cooking it....or it's nori on sushi.. :mrgreen: (she cooks up some weird Sh*t.. :o )

I know a lot of it is edible around here.Because a lot of it soaks up pollution,I don't make a habit of eating it.
Limpets,great for bait for bottom fish,used to catch a lot of sea perch and flounder on those as kids..in Hawaii they call them Opihi..and they cost about $20+ a pound.They soak them in a Korean style sauce(soysauce,salt,hawaiian peppers..?).
I haven't eaten much weird seafood around here other than lots of mussels, oysters,and all the different types of clams.In Hawaii I ate more of the oddball stuff...all types of fishes,slipper lobster,samoan crab,blue crab,opihi,sea cucumbers..other things I didn't want to know what it was.If it grows or moves, they'll eat it over there.. :lol:
Nice trip and pictures!

Hi Daren,

I'm not sure about the Broken Group but I am thinking I should be able to do some gentle paddling by mid July.

Cheers,

Roy.

Roy, we teach the man to use alcohol stoves and what does he use to cook his meals, wood and a canister stove. :mrgreen:

Daren, terrific photos!!!! Thanks a million, very inspiring.

Did you go over and bother the biologists like they asked? :D
Interesting archeology info about the chell /sand formation created by the ancient inhabitants of the island. I was surprised that the island could support the small deer.

When do you use your DIY wood paddler or has it been deemed too nice to use :D

Very nice pics Daren, I'm glad you took a backup camera just like Zelph also noticed you had a backup stove. Zelph, I'm sure both those stoves are daren's DIY products so not using alky is OK. I don't know about eating all that green seaweed products. As a kid growing up, the one thing I could not stand but was required to eat a portion of was cooked spinish. I said it was like eating seaweed. I still don't like it unless it is raw. Awesome trip, thanks for sharing the pics. :D
