May the current be with you...

13 May 2012 | Nanaimo, BC
Debra/ Sunny and breezy
We started on our way with a current out of Anacortes that had us going almost 11 knots! Since then it seems we've had more against us than with us, we have been traveling during the middle of the day on the ebb current (which heads south) when we are headed north. But we are traveling short days and enjoying the towns we stay in. Stopped in Sidney, Ganges, and Ladysmith Harbour. In Sidney we cleared customs and stocked up on wine and food. In Ganges we went to the Farmer's Market, where there were more crafts than produce, very artsy town. Tonight we are staying in Nanaimo Harbour, no wireless but we found a coffee shop with wifi so I am able to update blog. (you would think for a $60 marina fee you would get wifi!). It has been very sunny and we did not think we'd be using this much suntan lotion. Not too much wind so far, but next few days we will be in the Straights of Georgia with northwest winds forecast.
