Another glorious sunny weekend here in Prince Rupert. We spent the afternoon out at Kloiya Bay where we experienced an exceptionally high tide thanks to the Super Moon. I’ve never seen it so high or rise that quickly! We had to move our trucks so they didn’t end up under water.

We dropped a couple crab traps and my friend and her soon to be born babe were snug in the kayak for a few turns in the bay.

Looking good considering

Despite the warmth of the day the fire was a welcome touch. The kids enjoyed building it, tending it, feeding it, poking it and sitting and staring into it.

Kep proved wrong a few people, who believed he wouldn’t be a swimming dog, by happily swimming in the water and greeting Leif and Cam as they came back with the caught crab. He even got a halibut head, which was being used as bait, out of the deal.

Everyone (but me) enjoyed a fresh beach side cooked crab snack.

Sun + Family + Fresh Crab = Happiness


Once the tide headed out again, we were able to enjoy the rope swing over the water’s edge. It was made especially for Lily, I think. The wood seat was a tad small for my bum but I had to give it a try after my pregnant friend was able to make it work- with belly and all.


Pure Joy

Leif really wanted to try but was unsure about his ability to hold on. He gripped the rope for dear life and curled inwards as much as possible. He had a huge smile when I helped him off! I think he proved a little something to himself. Doesn’t that alone make the day worth it.

Eager but unsure
