This is the mouse click version of our PowerPoint presentation. Most (but not all) of the slides advance with a click. Also some of the effects within the slide are started with a click. Just wait about 3 seconds – if nothing happens, CLICK.
Heres a not so quick introduction to where we live

We are: 89 km north of Port Hardy – our closest town 220 km northwest of Vancouver 3819 km west northwest of Ottawa 4958 km due west of Rivers Inlet is, Utashud, Siberia not Japan, AND But
A Picture of our bay – the back part of Sleepy Bay

Rivers Inlet is here At the head of the Inlet is the First Nations Village of Oweekano There are also two other inlets that go off Rivers Inlet Moses Hardy
Here is where our closest neighbours are x Sleepy Bay (Us) ORobins Nest (Sunshine Bay) Robin, Sarah & Charlotte O O O Dawsons Landing Rob, Nola, Amber & Crystal Bucks Camp (Finn Bay) Art & Shelly Coopers Cove (McGee Channel) Richard & Sheila
Not all the names we use are on the chart. Some are local names. Here is where they are: Klaquaek Channel is locally know as The Lake. In any wind other than a SW one, this area is calm like a mirror
This pass is know as Slaughter Alley. Local legend has it that one band of Natives massacred another in this spot.
Boaters know this area as Fury Cove as it is behind Fury Island. Locals call this area Clam Beach – do I really have to tell why?
And at the back of Magee Channel is Coopers Cove, cause thats where they live.

The Lodge Cats Ballou Miss Kitty Roxie
Our Vehicles Dove our work boat. Called Dove as it looks like a bar of soap Pip Our crew boat. The Rivers Inlet equivalent of a family sedan
This is our supply tug & barge, The Gulf Ranger, delivering our groceries. Shes too big to get into the Lodge, so drops the groceries on the Airport float. The planes bringing in the guests cant get to the Lodge either, so drops & picks them up from this float.
And Now Just Some Scenery
Clam Beach – the sand looks so white because it isnt sand, its ground shells. Most of the beaches around here are shell beaches.
This is just in behind Clam Beach. The Island in the background is Calvert Isl.
