So we are off and running again.
I have chartered a 40′ Beneteau called Baraka Too from our friends at Nanaimo Yacht Charters for a little over two weeks. We will be meeting up with Dave and Margaret from R Shack Island in Nanaimo and the two boats will be traveling together for a while.
At this point we will either go north to Desolation Sound for peace, quiet and nature or head south towards Victoria for a bit more urban, touristy trip.
Desolation Sound is supposed to be beautiful with warm water and secluded anchorages, and without the flotilla, we could do much more exploring and relaxing. On the other hand we might finally be able to make it to Victoria. I contacted the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority and if we make a reservation we should be able to find dock space on the Causeway, right across from the Empress Hotel. Leslie and I have stared at those boats many a time back when sailing was just a dream and it would tickle us both to actually be one of them.
There are pros and cons to both but we will wait and see.
For now we will start packing/prepping again and get ready for a new adventure.
