Okay – we admit it – summer is over! The orcas have headed off to their winter hunting grounds and grizzlies are moving from the streams into the mountains. Looking across Johnston Strait to Vancouver Island, we can see splashes of gold and red in the dark green forests. The air is crisp and tinged with the smell of cedar fires burning, the ocean, and the unmistakeable scent of the north.
Most of the tourists have left Cormorant Island - they too migrate away after the wildlife departs. The lodge is quiet, we have a couple from France here who have the lodge essentially to themselves. We are waiting for a stretch of windy weather in the hope that a good log will blow up on the beach and sacrifice itself for our firewood supply.
