Weather never better.

The weather has been so pleasant that we stayed two nights in this, our favorite anchorage in Desolation Sound. We had a visit from Byron and Sue (Eagle's Gig) yesterday. They are anchored in another cove here in Von Donop Inlet and were out riding around in their dinghy. We are both heading to Drew Harbour tomorrow and we plan to meet up for dinner at the Heriot Bay Inn.

We had a good dinner with Sue and Byron and treated them to a preview presentation of the photos and video of our dolphin/whale experience in Viner Sound. Today we depart to travel down the Georgia Strait to Comox, and then on to Nanaimo, B.C. The weather continues to be excellent for travel in the strait and we will take advantage of it.

We have gained a lot of ground towards home in the last seven days and are now in Ganges, B.C. We are going to rest here for a day or two, then cross over into U.S. waters by Wednesday. Our club is holding the last outing of the year next weekend at Sucia Island State Marine Park. We plan to be there and help out with the annual work party. We maintain trails and camp sites, paint, fix and do other things that the ranger needs to have done. It is always a fun and productive weekend for the club.
