On the water again!

We got away on time and are heading through Gabriola Passage to Lasqueti Island. Our weather forecast is for a chance of showers this afternoon and about 20 degrees, winds 10 to 15 knots in the straight this morning but then decreasing later this afternoon. Not exactly what we were hoping for, but we'll wait to see when we get there.
Arrive: Rous Bay, Lasqueti Island 1640
Beautiful day for sailing, even with all the rain, we had 10-15 knots of wind at our backs. Took the sails down just before Lasqueti. This is a one boat anchorage! Quiet and very tight.
