We left Von Donop early this morning, watched some humpback whales and stopped in Teakerne Arm to go swimming in Cassel Lake, a short hike from the dinghy dock there. Next stop was Refuge Cove to get some ice cream. From there we went to Squirrel Cove and watched some orcas on the way. The water here is nice and warm and we all spent a lot of time in the water.
We all went to Campbell River, moved onto the boat and are spending a week in Desolation Sound. The kids (and adults) are spending a lot of time on the water, and in the water. On the way into Von Donop Inlet tonight, we saw a few whales, one came quite close.
We are back in Gowlland Harbour, beautiful day with a very nice sunset.
We are spending two days in Drew Harbour behind Rebecca Spit. This is a beautiful long beach, great for walking and kayaking. Today we went to the pub at the Heriot Bay Inn for lunch. The weather continues to be very hot and sunny.
A short hop around the corner and we are anchored in Tenedos Bay now. Busy, but not as busy as Prideaux. The weather today is even hotter, and the water here is warmer than yesterday, so more swimming.
We came back into Prideaux Haven today, which is very busy and quite full of boats this time. The temperature was well above 30 degrees Celsius today, water temperature 22. We both went swimming.
We came back to Squirrel Cove today and watched both orcas and humpback whales on the way. The weather is hot and sunny and friends are coming over for a drink tonight.
We left our idyllic anchorage on Read Island, spent some time watching whales, and then came into Waiatt Bay on Quadra Island. This is quite busy, but we found a nice corner in the shade (with a landline). There is no cellphone coverage here, so no pictures.
We left Gowlland early this morning and stopped at Mitlenatch Island to look at the sea lions and birds. We then met friends in Drew Harbour behind Rebecca Spit for a walk and a chat. Tonight we are anchored off Read Island. On the way we saw quite a few whales, but again no good pictures.
