Ahh, the sea... once it casts it's spell, it holds one in it's net of wonder forever.

Leave Hardy Island 0650
Arrive Copeland Islands 1330
Trip Log 100.7 nm
Heading north to Copeland Islands 29 miles away. I will continue this post later today, assuming we will still have an internet connection.
Beautiful day today, we motor sailed most of the way. Mavis and Walter were already tucked into a spot by the time we got here even though we left about 1 and a half hours before them! Been in twice for a swim, the water is a cool 18 degrees, but very refreshing!! Tonight we are going to stay up for the metor shower. I will post some pictures soon!
Kathy & Jerry.......love exploring the Gulf Islands and coastal waters of British Columbia on our sailboat. We also have become fond of exploring central Mexico during the winter months, and hanging out in the small town of Ajijic. We hope our photos and blogging will give you the chance to experience the same, and maybe inspire you to do some exploring yourself.
New crew member
We welcome aboard our newest crew.... Maggie. She joined our family this spring on March 23. She celebrated her first birthday on April 27th. She is very smart, so we are hopeful that she will learn her new duties quickly.
Splendid Mane is a 2002 Beneteau 393, 40 feet in lenght. We have radar, color chartplotter, 56 hp yanmar engine, autopilot, autostream feathering propeller, dingy with 6hp engine, dodger with full enclosure, two staterooms, two heads, fully equipped galley, and lots more extras. It is a safe, comfortable boat for two people but would be easy to sail singlehanded as well.
