Back Aboard TyDewi
Within minutes back aboard, the kids just got right back into their usual routine: dressing up, play-dough, computer games etc. Clearly the 530am wake-up was just a bit too much for Issie, and she soon fell into a deep three hour sleep. After loading up the boat with provisions and returning the rental car, we motored the short distance across to Protection Island. A beautiful, calm anchorage with a great view of Nanaimo. From here we could just watch the world go by, and what a different world it is indeed. Float planes, ferries, water taxi's, you name it. By our second night, the weather had improved considerably, warm and sunny, good for putting the sails back on, and a dinghy trip ashore to the Dinghy Dock Pub. There we enjoyed a pint and met some interesting local liveaboards who have a pet cockatoo named Molly.
