2 week recap
09 August 2014 | Pender Harbour
Sunny 75*, wind <5
We left Tacoma on Friday the 25th of July for Eagle Harbor to meet up with Joe and Cheryl on Focused. We went from Eagle to Hunter Bay on Lopez Island to anchor, and then into Canada and mooring at Port Browning Marina. We used our NEXUS cards and check in was done by phone. We made another long day to Pender Harbour and Garden Bay Marina. The next day put us in Squirrel Cove on Cortez Island where we stayed for two nights, before moving on to Von Donup Inlet for a couple of nights. The next stop was the Octopus Islands and anchorage along the southern edge of Waiatt Bay for two nights. I should mention that we consider it a cold day if the temperature doesn't get above 75* and we haven't had a cold day. We left Waiatt Bay and sailed down to Taku Marina on Quadra Island for a night. The next day we motored over to Grace Harbour in Desolation Sound for a night, and then to Laura Cove for three nights, as this is Linda's favorite place in Desolation. While we were there they had a concert off the swimstep of an 85' Ocean Alexander in Prideaux Haven, with 135 dinghies in attendance. The artist was Robin Landry from Maple Valley and her backups/band were the "Chicsea Dicks". It was a very nice way to spend 90 minutes on Friday night. We left Laura this morning and pulled into Pender Harbour at 5. I topped Helios off with fuel and figured out that I'm getting 5.3 nautical miles per gallon. We are off to Nanaimo tomorrow.
