Lv: Smuggler Cove M.P.

Arrived in good time to go through Gabriola Passage, so we anchored in Dengen Bay instead of Silva Bay. We had a look around Silva and it was way too busy for us! Boats going all over the place. As the days count down, we don't feel like we are in a hurry to get home. We could just keep going south and maybe end up in Mexico!

We can see a thunder cloud forming over Ladysmith and then the lightening and thunder started. Soon, it was over us and raining hard. Hopefully this weather is going to change because we have had enough rain for one summer!
