Day 7 – almost half way there
Colin has another long day behind him. It’s day 7 of his row and he’s travelled a total of 539 km. Just over 600 km to go. The region he’s going through is absolutely stunning, and he’d love to return on a more leisurely trip.
Tonight he’s camped on a small beach on Nootka Island. It’s private land so he had to pay $35 but the owner did bring him dinner – halibut and potatoes!!
Since yesterday he’s been having trouble with tendonitis in one of his forearms. This comes from feathering the oars, and is an issue we also had on our Scotland to Syria expedition. His forearm is swollen and it’s quite painful. He’s trying to reduce the inflammation by splashing water on it. And he didn’t feather the oars today which helped.
Colin’s about 90 km away from Tofino and on Tuesday Leif and I are going to see him there. We’re very excited!!
