    Just got back from a fun trip to the Nuchatlitz. Lots of interesting weather and the new (to me) sport of "Blow hole baiting".
    Got back to the put-in at Little Espinosa to find that someone had stolen my license plates.
    Could have been worse...

    I was wondering if others felt it might be useful to share similar tales of woe from that location...

    Sad to hear, but thank you for sharing. A friend did two trips in the last couple of months out of Little Espinosa, but without incident. Too bad you were there at the wrong time.

    For access to Nuchatlitz/Nootka I’ve used Tahsis a couple of times. The municipal parking lot is right beside the RCMP station, so I felt comfortable parking there for several days. They charge $5/day, $25/week.

    Cheers,
