Taking advantage of some nice weather........

Saturday November 22, 2008
Lv: Ladysmith Harbour 1330
Hours on engine: 1392
Log: 1203
We had originally planned to leave yesterday but the weather was so nasty (wind and rain), that we decided to wait a day... besides, what's the hurry? We have all the time we need. Not that we are sissies, but hey, it is all about comfort and fun, right? Anyway, glad we waited because the day was an absolutely perfect as far as the weather (winter) is concerned. We enjoyed a nice 15 knot breeze as we were heading down Tricomali Channel towards our anchorage near Montague Harbour. The only other boats we came across, out to disturb our solitude, were 5 hot rod power boats that looked like they were racing around Salt Spring Island. Obviously, they have too much money to BURN!

Arrive: Parker Island 1630
Lat: 48 53.65 N
Lon: 123 25.14 W
We put the anchor down in a small cove near Parker Island. We are alone except for one or two harbour seals and some cormorants. Ahhh, this is the life. We just love getting away and out on the water. Words really do not do justice to how nice this is. Now our only challange is to keep the boat warm enough so we don't have to use our survival suits!
