On the way to Jedediah Island

Tuesday August 10, 2010
Leave Nanaimo 0750
Arrive Boho Bay, Lasqueti Island 1410
Trip Log 48.1 nm
It looked like the weather was going to be calm today, but as we left Nanaimo Harbour, the wind picked up to 15 - 20 knots. We motored sailed for an hour with just the main up, but once we got out in the middle of Georgia Strait, we decided the winds were not gusting anymore and pretty steady at 16 knots, both sails went up and we are cruising along at about 5 knots. The sun is out and it is a beautiful day!

Just after we got anchored and had our lunch, our friends Walter and Mavis showed up. They said they had just spend some time right outside the bay enjoying a pod of 5 or 6 orcas playing, at one point very close to their boat! So, after they got anchored, they came over in their tender to pick us up to head out and see if they were still there. They were gone by this time ( you don't really know how disappointed I was!!), but now that we know they are in the area we will be keeping a keen watch for them again!
