One of the special things about Desolation Sound is its geographical diversity. As equally impressive as the amazing sights we've seen in Mexico and French Polynesia, this is the cold water version of Paradise in our opinion. In the past few days we've anchored in deep water next to sheer wall cliffs, kayaked through tidal rapids into huge salt-water lagoons and swam in clean, clear lakes just a few hundred yards from shore's edge.
Below is Jody swimming in Unwin Lake at Tenedos Bay.
For the next 22 hours, Huzzah is trapped at anchor here in Roscoe Bay, as the once passable entrance is now an almost dry, rock-strewn land bridge. This is my first time here, and despite the rain I love the adventure of it all. Apparently others' do as well, as the dozen or so boats anchored here seem to change frequently at high tide. For deep draft sailboats like us, that's at least a 11' high tide. And Roscoe Bay has its own lake a short walk from the harbors end, Black Lake. Today it's raining so we'll have to check out the swimming here on another trip.
Cheers from Huzzah!
