Flower Pot Island seen from the Passing Cloud off shore from Titul Island.
In the back ground is the Tangil Peninsula, the spine of which is the northern Gwaii Haanas boundary.
When visiting T’anuu while travelling with the Passing Cloud we witnessed the harassment of an eagle by oyster catchers.
The Haida watchman told us that a few days before the eagle had killed and eaten an oyster catcher on this same beach and ever since the others would not leave the eagle alone, repeatedly dive bombing with a lot of noise.
It has many Haida house frames and features preserved from the 1800s and is an important tourist destination in the area.
It was a bonus to be shown a bit of nature’s drama at the same time.
This is Heater Harbour at dawn taken from the Passing Cloud.
Heater Harbour is on Kunghit Island just east and south of Rose Harbour in Gwaii Haanas.
While travelling on the Passing Cloud we stopped at Hotsprings Island.
The hot springs were turned off by an earthquake a few years ago, but in the last year have started to flow again.
New pools have been built to capture the new flow which has moved.
This view is of Thurston Harbour across the rear deck of the schooner Passing Cloud.
Thurston Harbour is on Talunkwan Island just north of the Gwaii Haanas boundary.
More from the schooner Passing Cloud, seen here in Bag Harbour.
Bag Harbour is on Moresby Island Gwaii Haanas just south of Burnaby Narrows.
In the narrows is one of the greatest concentrations of intertidal life anywhere, a highlight of the trip at low tide.
More from my recent two weeks aboard the schooner Passing Cloud, which is faintly visible in the distance, along with her tender that had just dropped us off.
This photo, one of my favourites from the trip, is in Woodruff Bay on the south end of Kunghit Island in Gwaii Haanas.
