Blog derailed by Mexican train!

Only one blog for all of Quatsino Sound? Surely I could have written more, a paragraph each about Port Alice and Coal Harbour just wasn't enough. And I didn't say anything about Winter Harbour where we spent our last night before leaving for the mainland. I could make excuses about lack of wifi, but they did have it at Coal Harbour and Winter Harbour -- for a fee. No, the real reason is the set of Mexican Train Dominoes on board Osprey. A fellow member of the Puget Sound Cruising Club introduced us to the game last September and I thought it would be fun to have on board so I gave Steve a set for Christmas. A mistake! We're both hooked. I'll reach for my notebook or computer to work on my blog and Steve will say, "How about a couple of rounds of dominoes?"
