Not always sunny in Ocean Falls we remained on the Dock as the wind and rain revealed what the inlet is more known for. Wow what a rain fall. Little did we know that this was the begining a pattern that would follow us for the next 10 days.
Our last nice day for awhile we set course for the upper Dean Channel and Kimsquit Bay to visit Deb’s Brother and wife at our property on the Dean River. A first for the Thunder we enjoyed a beautiful day as we wound our way up the inlet deep into the coastal mountains and out of radio communication with just about everyone. Our voyage took us by the historic landmark and cairn that marks where Alexander Mckenzie made the first overland crossing of Canada, July 22nd, 1793. As we reached Kimsquit Bay and hailed our family at the camp the sun was warm and we were excited about a day of fishing for northern Coho on the fabled Dean River.
