We managed a couple of hours pause in Eucott Bay to enjoy a soak in the hotsprings. Apparently these were developed into a bit of a spa at the turn of the century, though that's all gone now. The pier and anything else have long disappeared back into the wilderness. The hotsprings themselves are damned hot, and a ten minute soak followed by five minutes in 9 degree ocean was a real cardiac test. Did that a few times over an hour. A great op pause before carrying on with the patrol.

Definitely one for the "Bucket List"!

I'm thinkin' I'll pass on the 9 degree ocean part, though. 8O

Brings back memories of creek crossing back and forth at Rock Lake last summer. Screw that! :lol:

You say that now, but the hotsprings were about 55 degrees or so!

sounds just about right. There are hotsprings everywhere here. You can dig out your own spot along the embankment and divert some river water in if it's too warm.
