Scuba Diving 1:20:00 
1st dive was 40min
2nd dive was 30 min
Wreck diving at Nanaimo. We tried to go to Saskatchewan but the site was too windy so we dove one near the bay, can't remember the name of the wreck. The water temp was 6 C and we wore two 8mm wetsuits and that kept me warm enough to stay down there for awhile. We saw lots of crabs, tiny shrimps, starfishes (they are back!), sea cucumbers, jellyfish, lingcod, and many kinds of fish that I don't know all the names.
Walk 4:30:00  14.0 km (19:17 / km)
WCT - Day 5 (last day)
Sunny day!! We visited Pachena lighthouse and had snack break at sea lion haul out rock. Sort of sad to finish the hike but so looking forward to take a shower. We were so glad that we didn't get any rain and had some beautiful views. Now I'm looking forward to Nootka trail next month!
Walk 4:00:00  11.0 km (21:49 / km)
WCT - Day 4
Foggy morning and clear afternoon. Mix of beaches and forest. We saw a dead whale near Orange Juice Creek. When we got to Darling River campsite we need to decide whether we wanted to hike another 4hrs to finish or camp here. My mom didn't want this hike end yet so we decided to camp. We had lots of time so we explored the area and walked to a nice waterfall. Another beautiful night so we sat on the beach and looked for whales and we saw four of them. It was such a treat to see whales passing by since my mom and I have never seen a whale in the wild.
Walk 6:30:00  16.5 km (23:38 / km)
WCT - Day 3
Woke up with a hole on our tent that mice ate through the tent to get my granola bar I had by my pack... couldn't believe that it ate the tent and two ziplock bags and the wrapper to get my granola. We lueko taped the hole before we put the tent away.
Thick foggy morning but it lifted by noon and we had a beautiful blue ski day. Today was mix of beaches and forests. We had very tasty lingcod and baked potatos at Nitinat Narrows ferry crossing. Here we met two guys who took the floatplane from Gordon River to Bamfield. They told us about some plane malfunction during landing but they made it ok. They had huge packs so we weighed the packs on fish scale and mine was 20.6lb and one of their pack was 48.5lb. We looked at each other and laughed. They must be eating very nice meals every day.
After the ferry crossing, we walked to Tsusiat Falls campsite. It was bit busy campsite but lots of space. Beautiful spot to camp but again there were mice issue but we were careful this time around.
Walk 7:00:00  16.5 km (25:27 / km)
WCT - Day 2
Another cloudy weather. Today's walk was mostly on beaches. Nice change from muddy/rooty trails but walking on the sand was hard in different way. We had a burgers at a Indian Reserve near Carmanah Point. The burgers weren't that great but butter tarts were good. Big Fish treated himself with beer and my mom and I shared a pop. We continued on for another 1.5 hr or so and stopped at Cribs Creek campsite at 3pm. We could have gone to next spot but wasn't sure the next stream would have any water. At the campsite, we met a girl from Latvia who is a Rogainer!! Her team is called Ozone. She was visiting her Latvian friend who lives in Victoria and was racing in Washington before this WCT hike. It was super cool to chat with her and get some ideas about the terrains we are going to race this summer and we going to look for each other at the event! :).
Walk 8:00:00  17.0 km (28:14 / km)
WCT - Day 1
Left Gordon River at 8am. Buchi (the boat operator) was nice to take us cross the river earlier than usual. Overcast day but it didn't really matter since we were in the forest most of the time. One beach section with boulder hopping (Quartertide Rocks and Kelley Rocks) was tricky but no sprained ankle. Owen Point with a hole through under the rock was pretty cool. We saw a young bear near the end of the beach section and passed a large group of high school kids. Sooooo many ladders on day 1 and my buttocks were sore at the end of the day. We made it to Cullite Creek campsite around 4pm. There were only two other tents before us; however the high school kids and few other groups arrived after 6pm and the campsite got packed...
