This past weekend I flew up to Bella Bella to visit Rob. It is beautiful up there with all the mountains, ocean inlets and wildlife.
Bella Bella is an interesting place as it is a First Nations reserve and very remote. The ferry comes about once a week, but there are small planes every day. It was neat being able to boat down ocean channels and not see any people for over an hour! The beaches we visited had no traces of humans – it was really untouched nature.
It is an interesting mix of people in the neighbouring town of Shearwater (about a 5 minute boat ride from Bella Bella). The population is about 70 people – the other guy staying in Rob’s cabin is an underwater wildlife photographer for the National Geographic. He liked my banana bread. I hope I get a mention in one of his captions.
