Pender Harbour to Jedediah Island


Stern tied on Jedediah Island.

Monday Sept 21, 2009
Leave: Pender Harbour 0900
Beautiful day! Sun is out and the sky is clear. We had a nice night in Pender Harbour, listening to the jazz music coming from a nearby pub (last night of the Pender Harbour Jazz Festival). The harbour was crowded, lots of American boats too.
We motored over to Jedediah, anchoring in a small cove between Jedediah and Paul Island.
Arrive: Jedediah 1420 stern tie ancohorage
We thought it was pretty tight anchorage with two other boats already settled in, but by dinner time, there was a total of eight boats, all stern tied.
Jerry and I went for a walk on Jedediah Island (all park land), and left GG to relax, watch the activity and read. Jedediah is a beautiful marine park, used to be privately owned, but was bought by the BC government in 1994.

One of the "wild" sheep that still live on Jedediah, remnants of the heard that was brought there by the owners of the island.

Do you set the anchor at the bow of the boat? Are there things to tie to for the stern line? Why do you do this anyway?

Does anyone shear the sheep? Are there any predators there to eat them?

I can't get my head around the self portrait. Can you explain it for me please? (Use small words)

Yes the anchor is down at the bow. We put it down first then back up towards shore, jump in the dingy towing a line (attached to the boat), run the line through a chain or around a tree, jump in the dingy towing the line and tie it to the boat again. Simple!
No one shears the sheep but I think hippies from Lasqueti come over and pick up the wool that sheds off naturally. And yes, there still are hippies out there!
Self portraits are like that sometimes, you have to really know me to understand what I am showing!
Good luck!

How about a hint?

Hi, It was very fun to open this site and see how recent it was. And then it dawned on me. My boat is in this photo too. We were your neighbors on this Solstice evening. Here is the address of my blog; Jedediah will be my next posting.
