Drew, Rebecca, & Heriot

30 July 2018
Our most recent stop was to Drew Harbor, Rebecca Spit & Heriot Bay, on Quadra Island’s east side. We anchored in Drew Harbor, which gains its protection from Rebecca Spit to its East. Rebecca Spit has the most amazing collection of driftwood and logs covering its shores I’ve ever seen and RVers come just to see it. Heriot Bay is to West, crowded with dozens of cheap fiberglass boats that make anchoring there impossible for visitors. But it has a decent marina, resort, pub, and RV park (and showers) on its south shores. After the Octopus Islands, we were looking for a dinner out and the Pub sounded great. After a couple sleeves (pints) of beer and the big serving of fish and chips, we were full! With locals pouring in for the live music, we retreated to the boat for another restful night.

The following day we got a chance to stretch our legs a bit more with walk to the island’s largest food store. Not that it’s big – it’s not! Living here in the islands would be a difficult adjustment for most mainland folks. Later that day, a fellow sailor from the anchorage that had recognized Huzzah from a few different harbors over the prior weeks’ stopped by in his dinghy to chat. That afforded us another chance to meet some delightful Canadian sailors over sun-downers in the cockpit.

A peaceful anchorage well worth the visit!

Cheers from Huzzah!
