We arrived in Hartley Bay, a First Nations village of the Gitga'at tribe or band. The only person we know from here is of the Tsimshian tribe, but we tried to find him this afternoon and learned he left for Victoria a while ago.
Hartley is a colorful place with boardwalks instead of roads, and ATVs instead of cars. It looks like everyone owns a fishing boat. A totem pole and attractive Big House adorn the waterfront.
We're at a Government Dock, which means a free place to tie up and also dispose of garbage. It's a small marina, crowded tonight with only 3 recreational cruisers like us, but many mid-size fishing boats, local and from all over.
