I Never Tire Of Telegraph Cove.

Here’s another post I’ve been meaning to do since early August.

Cousins Sian and Jay came up from the Seattle area in the first week of August They stayed for a week and I enjoyed having them here. Mostly we did short trips around the valley and spent some time with my family here in the area.

However, we did make the 3+ hour drive to Telegraph cove one day. Here’s a map to give those of you overseas and idea of where we went.

Comox to Telegraph Cove: Vancouver Island

The object of the trip was to board a vessel owned by Stubbs Island Whale Watching and go in search of marine life. We hoped to see orcas, humpbacks, dolphins etc and we weren’t disappointed. We gathered together on the dock to get a team picture before we left. Even the skipper squeaked into the shot! (Back left)

The surface was flat calm which suited Sian nicely.

Much of the time the surface was like this.

Soon we were all absorbed in scanning the surface for whales. We failed to spot orcas but saw three humpbacks feeding together in one spot.

The whale watching trip was a great success.

Soon, the week was over and it was time for Sian and Jay to leave. However, we did manage to end it well with a family night out for dinner.

That’s all folks. ‘Bye for now and God bless.

    • Awe…you would love it I’m sure. There’s an RV park there to with all hook-ups. We had planned to take Rosie up one day, go out on the boat the next, then return home the third day. Sadly in didn’t come to fruition due to the problem with the brakes. Maybe a trip for the Harringtons?

  1. Hi Martin, I’m sure that’s the trip we did with you when we were there. I remember it was fantastic! Glad you had a good week. Right now we’re in Deganwy for a few days. Our weird but wonderful long hot summer seems to be over and we’re back to a normal British summer. It’s beautiful here though and we can put up with the odd shower!! Jan.x

    • Thanks for the Canadianisms via email. I confess I did not know all of them. I also must confess that I did not know where Deganwy was though I suspected somewhere in N Wales. Have fun and enjoy the weather. Maybe pop in on Kate and Will if they are on a break?
