Day 3 – Sunshine Coast to Texada Island

Posted: May 28, 2014 by ivyvuu in Uncategorized

Day 3 brought rough and strong southeast winds in the morning.  John made the call to start the day later and had breakfast with a new friend – Erik, who is the same age as Papa Carinha (John’s dad, Carlos)

Thank you Erik for your hospitality and kindness!

As mentioned, much love came from this part of the coast – in the morning, before John headed out for breakfast, a kind stranger had left a home-made bagel and thermos of coffee near his tent, on a bench.

Thank you stranger, for your random act of kindness!

 

When John finally set out, he hit a squall half way to Texada and had wind coming from 3 different directions!  With the GPS and mapping not working at optimal levels, it was a frustrating few hours.  

But, he finally made it over to Texada.

Though it’s early days on this trip, aches and pains are creeping in, not to mention blisters, and the exhausting tasks all completed in solitude.

To finish up Day 3, John cooked up dinner, and hunkered down.
