Inside Passage Boat Camping

Bliss Landing June 2011

Jade and I had an amazing trip to my father’s summer-house in Bliss Landing BC.  We were up there from June 16th through the 24th and were lucky enough to share time at the house with my Dad before he left on 20th, leaving us to our books and oysters.  While he was there we spent many hours in his fishing boat setting crab pots that returned more crab then we were legally allowed to keep, prawn pots that held over a hundred, delicious spot prawns, and I also managed to reel in a nice size ling cod while we were trolling for salmon.  The spot prawns were the big winner as far as I’m concerned.  They are beautiful, medium size prawns that don’t require any de-veining as they spend their wild lives in some of the cleanest water in the world and taste like lobster. We saw Orca whales and Jade and I saw a young black bear scatter up a tree about ten feet from our golf cart (the preferred mode of transportation while on the property).  I already miss the easygoing life we had for the short time we were there and hope to make it up again later this summer.   I’ve posted most of our photos on my Wild Coasts Flickr.
