While travelling on the Passing Cloud we made a couple of visits to Hotsprings Island.
The hotsprings were turned off by an earthquake a few years ago, but in the last year have started to flow again.
Unfortunately, they are now in spots away from the established infrastructure of pools and bathing houses.
Even so, the view is to die for so it is still worth a visit.
I flew in to work on the Passing Cloud aboard a de Havilland Beaver floatplane, one of the workhorses of the north.
This view is somewhere over Hecate Strait.
Sandspit is strung out along the southwest shore of Skidegate Channel, with a road in front of the houses the whole way.

While on the Passing Cloud we passed by the Gordon Islands several times as they are between Kunghit Island and SGang Gwaay World Heritage Site.
We spent one morning exploring the Islands’ rocky ecosystems by zodiac.

I had never been able to disembark here on previous trips so it was a real pleasure to be able to while with the Passing Cloud.
Today is the 5 year anniversary of making at least one post every day.
That is 1916 posts, which seems like a huge number.
As I said last year I may abandon the post-a-day routine for something a bit less demanding.
But, I am not sure about that yet.
