Leaving Bowser behind....

Getting ready to leave our family reunion yesterday morning, Maggie was enjoying a snooze in David's arms. She really played hard the whole weekend! She spent the rest of the day sleeping.

We anchored on the northeast end of Denman Island yesterday afternoon. After a walk on the beach, we headed back to the boat and were treated to one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen! It literally looked like the sky was on fire.
Today we are aiming for Octopus Islands Marine Park on the north end of Quadra Island. Waves slapping on the stern forced an early start this morning, we pulled anchor at 4:15!! We have the current in our favour right now but a 15 knot NW wind is pretty much straight on our nose. Hopefully the wind dies down a bit (sounds odd coming from a sailboat!) so we can make better time today.

Well, have a safe and beautiful sail... hugs to you, Jerry and Mom. Oh. And Maggie, of course. I will be following your 3 months closely. Love you!
