Sun setting in Gowland Harbour

Lv: Gowland Harbour, Quadra Island
Course: Discovery Passage > Strait of Georgia > Copeland Islands Marine Park
Beautiful sunny day passage, lots of boats out on the water on this holiday weekend, going all directions. Looks like everyone picked this weekend to do some boating.
Arv: Copeland Islands M.P.
Lat: 50 00.70 N
Lon: 124 48.73 W
Time: 1300
Trip: 20.6 nm Log: 4565.3 nm
There are not too many places to anchor here because it is mostly exposed to the winds or too deep. We found a cove sheltered from the wind but open to the wake from passing boats. All day long, boats went both directions past us we had to rename Thulin Passage "the I-5". You'd have to look both ways before you crossed! The spot we anchored in was somewhat protected from the wakes, but other sailboats close to us were getting rocked. We are having a hard time getting used to so many boats around.

Hi Kathy and Jerry!

Wow, so nice to get all caught up on your travels. You've captured the spectacular beauty of the country so well in your photos - truly magical!! I have enjoyed so much reading all about your adventures, the sailing, hiking along deserted islands, snorkeling in the clear waters, catching your own meals... What a life! I bet you're already thinking about your next trip. :-)

I leave for my escape to Baja, (can't wait!), next Monday and when I return mid Sept, I'm sure you'll be back by then. I wish you all the best for the end of your fantastic voyage!

Love, Kim

Ahhhh....? spoiled already!!!!
Wait until your home, and have to get back into the rat race. Just kidding of course. I understand after your wonderful journey it will be hard to get used to the daily routine. But you can plan for another sailing trip, so something to look forward to. I guess you be very soon home.
See you
Rita
