Touring with Shoreline
Despite the chilly winds and icy drizzle this was a great fall adventure. Admittedly the cozy warmth of the Laroan's enclosed lower deck was a huge factor in making the less than ideal weather bareable, even welcoming. The first leg of our Harrison River tour took us to ancient pictographs on a rock face just inside the mouth of the river - a reminder of the areas rich First Nations culture. And then came the bald eagles. Thousands of them in the trees, on the sandy banks or soaring on the winds. They are drawn to the area each year to feast on the equally abdundant spawning salmon. Even the seals and seagulls were taking advantage of an easily caught meal. On the return trip, we stopped at the sunken remains o the historic steam tug, the Port Douglas SS or otherwise known as The Bubbles & Squeak.
