Time sure flies..., Here's just a quick word while we have brief internet access: After lavish provisioning at Ganges and Nanaimo, we've been cruising in the Desolation Sound area for the past couple weeks, making a loop around Cortes and Sonora Islands and stopping in many beautiful, calm, quiet, sheltered bays. We've seen some wildlife: seals, porpoises, and orcas. The snowy mountain peaks looming in the background in the hazy, cool late summer air. The calm waters make dinghy travel like skimming on a liquid mirror.
So far, our stops have included:
Cortes Bay, SYC Outstation
Refuge Cove for fuel
There hasn't been much wind, so we motor all the time. There are a fair number of boats around, but it's not at all crowded. The powerboats are starting to look pretty good, and we've undressing them with our eyes....
After a quick pause at Cortes again, we're off to Tenedos Bay before starting south again in a few days. Will post some photos later.
