Leaving Howe Sound, back across Georgia Strait

49 23.11N 123 19.87 W
We stopped for a look around Snug Cove on Bowen Island, lots of people around having fun at the park, playing baseball, kayaking, or just sipping on coffee. It was a very busy place. 
Leave Manion Bay 1530
Arrive North Cove, Thetis Island 2130
49 00.91N 123 41.63W
Our cruise across Georgia Strait started off with the promise of a nice sail, but it soon to calm winds and we ended up motoring the whole way. We rode the current through Gabriola Passage, stopped in Tricomali Channel for dinner and then started up again heading for our anchorage in North Cove.
