Took some time to get oriented to our base camp in Stella. Yesterday we spent the day getting used to our boats, learning strokes, practicing rescues. Today we took our first paddle up the river and are excited about heading out into the sound for the first time tomorrow to circumnavigate Huggins island and then coming back to pack for our first camping trip, to bear island. Spirits are high and everyone is getting the hang of kayaking really fast, lots of yummy food and laughter, and some gorgeous sunsets!
