The weather remains non-typical: mostly southerly and strong for the season. This isn’t a bad thing as there has been more rain (than last year), average temperatures (cooler than last year) and fewer forest fires.
I’ve been able to sail quite a bit – which is kinda’ the point of having a sailboat as a home!
(The above Instagram post also has a video!)
I believe the clear air has more people out boating. The past couple of weeks the anchorages have been filled with all sorts of craft.
In general I don’t have anyplace I need to be so I’ve been playing the winds and moving between my favorite Gulf Islands anchorages.
In a few days I’ll be going to Nanaimo to ‘see the town’. My dad is also coming over from the US to visit. The ‘fog of August’ has been present some mornings. I’m hoping not to be fogged in the morning I plan to transit Dodd Narrows.
