get there early and take a bath in the lake afterwards gathering cranberries for our cook to make pies with getting back into camp at 6 p.m.

Aug 26th. Again we have to remain around camp as there are no packs for us.

I go out on the lake for a row and have great fun with a young bear which I manage to get quite close to, as he is pulling down the berry bushes and eating the fruit. I get within 20 yds of him lay down flat down raft and watch his little capers.

Aug 27th. Off for packs as soon as light; get some canned tomatoes this trip and eat 2 cans before I get home as they are the first I've seen since leaving Victoria.

Aug 28th. Today we explore in morning, & I spend the afternoon in cobbling my old boots and in writing up my diary; very cloudy & foggy all day
