Sailing Break

Ah! Finally ,it is time for Summer Sailing Break....
We only have 5 days...
George came to pick me up in Tofino after my night .
I had a short nap at home and we left around 4 PM.
Overnight in Kulleet Bay near Yellowpoint.
Crab trap in the water= 0 crab
Beautiful lazy sunny morning then sailed our way
thru Sansum Narrows.The winds were almost a
little much for me...
We anchored outside of Cowichan Bay (before the
village)Tranquil night.
Shower on deck in the morning sun.
Crab trap= 1 crab (too small)thrown back
Going to anchor in the Bay.
Visit the beautiful little village of Cowichan Bay.
Great bakery,delicious cheeses...
Afternoon going down the Koksilah River
in the dinghy.
as suggested in the Cruising Guide of
 Vancouver Island.
So peaceful....
Filet mignon on the BBQ and good wine...
Crab Trap = 6 crabs     4 keepers .Yé !

                                                        Delightful dinner that night anchored
 in Whaleboat Park
off Ruxton Island...Fresh Crabs and  fresh corn..
Rough and stormy night at anchor.

Came back in Nanaimo for the
start of the Bathtub Race.

I just love summer sailing......
