Sheila invited five of her friends from Vancouver to join us on the boat in Nanaimo today, and I invited one of the husbands to help me drive the boat. We took a tour of the Malaspinas Galleries and Snake Island, and then stopped at Newcastle Island. A group of otters welcomed us there, having lunch, as did we. It was a nice day and the weather was ideal.
I returned to Newcastle Island today, but have no plans to go to the Dinghy Dock Pub. It will be a quiet evening on the boat instead.
Kalthoffs and Andrea are returning to Europe today and I took the boat from Ganges to Wallace Island. I walked 11km on the island this afternoon (every trail!), the weather is not as hot anymore but quite pleasant.
We hiked all around Jedidiah Island this morning and then continued South to Nanaimo. We are staying at Newcastle Island tonight and of course visited the Dinghy Dock Pub.
Beautiful sunny day and we continued South. We are now anchored in Codfish Bay, exploring Jedediah Island by kayak, paddle board and on foot.http://map.iridium.com/m?lat=49.494250&lon=-124.190292
We started heading South today, and are anchored in Tribune Bay on Hornby Island now. This is a very pretty big bay, open to the South, but with enough room for all the boats that come here. There is a long sandy beach, and we did a 10 km hike to Helliwell Park as well. The weather was sunny and warm.
