The Other Gorge
25 July 2018 | Gorge Harbour, BC
While it's true that most of our cruising experience is self contained and without the amenities we take for granted at home, there are a few exceptions. Gorge Harbour Marina Resort BC is the best exception we've found in this otherwise desolate place. White motor vessels line the docks, row after row, where plentiful electrical power and water are available. Ashore, well trimmed lawns and gardens surround a quality restaurant with a stunning view of the docks and harbor. The resort also includes the nicest bathrooms, showers and laundry room we've seen in Canada this trip! Oh, I forgot to mention the hot tub and swimming pool. Jody's still bummed we couldn't use them as they don't offer day passes when they're in high season.
We enjoyed Happy Hour and Tapas on the restaurant deck for my birthday. Wonderful food and a great setting all made the $76 "mini meal" seem worth it - somehow. The couple that sat next to us is the Editor/Publisher for Waggoner Cruising Guides, and said that $3 CDN per foot is the new normal for marina moorage north of Lund/Westview. Ouch! Makes expensive anchors and chain a good investment.
We're off to the Octopus Islands.
I doubt we'll have cell coverage, so we'll connect back in a few days.
Like is good aboard Huzzah!
