August 1 Hope to Sea Bird Island

Drive 110 km from Fort Langley to Hope and launch the voyageur canoes. There were three Fort Langley Canoe Club boats and the Quesnel paddlers brought their voyaguer canoe for a total of four starting at this point.

On the water about 2pm. This stretch everything is carried in the boats as there are no escort vehicles like on the northern leg of the trip, Fort St James to Alexandria.

Today paddled 34km from Hope to the Stolo band Village on Sea Bird Island, where arrangements had been made to camp for the evening.
