West Coast Vancouver Island - Wonderland

August 2nd - Dixie Cove
Under sunny skies, we motored further into Kyuquot Sound and anchored for the night in an interior cove of Dixie Cove.  Wonder of wonders - the water was warm enough for swimming!  What a treat.  The cove is mostly surrounded by high stone cliffs, and very pretty.  But it's hard to take any photos that do it justice.

We had the place to ourselves, until the sailboat Narnia from Seattle arrived in the evening.  We got acquainted and were to see them again later on as we traveled down the coast.

August 3rd - Rugged Point
Another sunny day and a short trip to Rugged Point Provincial Park at the southern lip of Kyuquot Sound.  The locals at Kyuquot Village especially recommended it.

There's a lovely anchorage on the inside and a short trail to beautiful beaches on the outside. Paradise.
