Another view to show how small it is. The sign is hanging on the point on the right.

'Good Sex Cove'
Glenn
11/20/2011, Teakerne Arm

A little further into the Arm on the north side is a small cove. I don't know who named it or when, but I know that the sign has been hanging there for at least 10 years. You can really only anchor about 2-3 boats in there in settled conditions. One morning a few years back, we were treated to a black bear thrashing about on the shore in the bushes. It's a beautiful spot to wake up in!

Not a bad spot for our first happy hour! I love the sound of the falls.

Check out the t-shirt and very rare shorts! (thank goodness) I don't think we did anything else that day except put a dent in our rum supply! Good times!

Are we proud C+C owners or what???

11/18/2011, Desolation Sound

The overcast skys started to thin as we passed Sara Pt. on our way to meet up with Ray & Donna aboard Sundance IV. They were anchored off Cassel Lake falls in Teakerne Arm. We proudly flew the 'C'olours so they could see us coming and hide if necessary! The sun came out as we came alongside and stayed out for weeks! I finally changed into shorts, put on some sunglasses and started to relax!

A wet / low cloud / 'wind on the nose' Saturday
Glenn
10/30/2011, Vananda, Texada Isl.

Bacchus tucked into a small bay mid day Saturday, on the north east end of Texada Isl. We had to get out of some sh#@@& weather and found a nice quiet yacht club. Good wharves, reasonably priced, deep water (I draw 7'2" so it's always a concern) and friendly people. The water was so deep in fact that they could not use pilings to hold the wharf in place. They had a weighted cable system that I've never run across before. A cable was anchored to the bottom then run up, through a pulley that was mounted on the surface of the wharf then half way back down with a weight on it's end holding it tight in the 14' tidal range. The 'Texada Boatin' Club' had a bit of a rural, redneck feel to it. I'd stop by again.

Enjoy getting your postings and the information you provide. Thanks! Do you or any of your Blog followers have any first hand information on cruising Toba Inlet? Best regards, "Legal-Ease"

Hey Bevan! You'll have to join us one year, 3 C+Cs would look great as a raft! I.ve only sailed past the mouth of Toba, very glacial!
