Over the past couple of days, I've sailed the boat down from our base in Comox to Pender Island, a beautiful part of the Gulf Islands, between Victoria and Vancouver. It was a lovely, single handed voyage with a couple of tranquil evening stops.
Cruising in these areas is especially beautiful because there is so much coastline, and you are frequently travelling close by the coast of islands and narrow passes. Watching the scenery pass by at a slow pace is a great way to observe and absorb the beauty of these land and waterscapes.
Over the course of the journey I've seen seals, otters, porpoise, and eagles, these are frequent companions in these waters.
The boat is working out as my mobile office, modern technology lets me keep connected and whilst it would be nice to be totaly away from it all once again, this is a best of both worlds approach, and I can stay in touch with the family easily too. Once school finishes in June, they will spend a lot more time aboard sharing these trips. I'm looking forward to that....
