I flew back to northern Vancouver Island yesterday and today travelled 100 nautical miles south. I had to go through 5 tidal rapids but the timing worked fairly well. Now I am anchored in Von Donop Inlet, both the air and water are 10 degrees warmer (each!) than up north and the forecast is for sunshine, feels like summer.
