Killer Surprise on My Sunshine Coast Walk

by bart on August 6, 2014

In preparation for my 100 km under 24 hrs Walk (September 13/14) I spent the August long weekend walking on the southern part of the Sunshine Coast in BC, Canada, in hot weather (around 30 degrees Celsius during the day).

I had a 20 kg backpack and was fully self-sufficient for 3 days.

Overall I walked about 30 km in about 2 days, but it was a very slow and difficult walk as it was all along the very rocky coastal shore.

I walked from the Langdale Ferry Terminal, through Gibsons, to an area near Roberts Creek, where I camped on the seashore, then back to the ferry and Vancouver.

Again I was rewarded for my efforts, reinforcing my belief that when we walk, we see and experience so much more of life. On Sunday morning, while having breakfast, I was treated to an incredible 2 hour show of Killer Whales (Orcas) feeding and playing.

My apologies for the poor quality of the video, but it was very windy, and they were about 200 meters off shore, so I had to zoom in. Nevertheless, I wanted to share at least a bit of this magical experience with you. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks Jana. It was my first time to see whales in the wild, and it was an amazing experience.
