After Nick’s walk with the toilet plunger torch on Friday, it was passed onto Trish and Emily waiting in the kayak for their paddle to Deep Cove.
While it had been very calm at Barnet Beach, it was wild and choppy in the mouth of Indian Arm and they struggled through the waves and spray, accompanied by loons, herons, cormorants, and a friendly seal. It was exhilerating and fun.
On Saturday, the torch will continue its journey through North and West Vancouver. Sunday morning it will travel over the Lions Gate Bridge and through downtown for the Poverty Olympics!
