Pruth Bay at Hakai Institute

We anchored near "RePhyl" in Pruth Bay, just offshore from the Hakai Institute, a scientific and environmental research organization funded by Eric Peterson. Staff here were the First Responders who came to our rescue last summer before the Coast Guard arrived. The campus is gorgeous, staff are friendly and love to share what they're working on, and 10 nearby beaches are spectacular.

Late in the first day, we searched for and found Rod and Blake, the two Hakai staff who first rescued us last summer, then repaired our boat and drove it 80 miles south around Cape Caution to leave it at Port McNeill for a month until we could arrange to bring her home.

It was a wonderful reunion, full of hugs and stories and happiness.
