As the sun slips from the sky over Ganges Harbour, our five month adventure is nearing it's end. Tomorrow we will return to whence we came and the circle will be complete. Our minds and hearts are forever enlightened by our experience. We will continue to revisit our memories through our stories, photographs and reminiscence with friends and family. We feel so fortunate to have seen the many incredible spectacles of nature revealing the beauty of our Earth. We entered the watery world of the many creatures we encountered from a vulnerable prospective of "floating on a boat" through their environment. We observed the migration of salmon returning to their place of birth in a self sacrificial circle of life and the process of natural selection. "Survival of the Fittest" ! Before our eyes we inconspicuously witnessed all that benefit from this process and entered the world of bears in their natural habitat.
This experience reiterates the importance of Human Stewardship of our planet to protect and preserve nature in all it's glory!
