September 1st, Refuge Cove Marina, south end of Redonda Island.
It’s the last leg of summer, and we woke to the lovely sound of rain. If you’ve never been inside a boat during a rain shower, you’re missing one of life’s little pleasures.
We’ve decided to stay in Desolation Sound for most of the coming week before starting the trek down south. The weather is going to improve and we have a few favorite anchorages in the area that promise quiet days of just messing around. With winter’s imminent arrival, it would be a shame to let that slip by.
Odyssey has been stocked up from the little store (thank you Sarah), the water tanks are full, and this morning we will fill the fuel tank on the way out.
After a week we’ll be back. With fresh supplies and internet weather forecasts, Refuge Cove is a great jumping off point to head south. From there we stop twice as we head down the Sunshine Coast. Then, from Pender Harbor, we can watch for a weather opening before crossing the Strait of Georgia to Nanaimo.
Now it’s time to untie the lines. We’ll keep you posted and run the tracker.
Sarah and Jonathan
