Desolation Sound

Gorge Harbour, Cortes Island

Sunday, July 26, 2009S.V. CAMBRIA

We’re sitting at anchor in Gorge Harbour after making our way up from Van Anda yesterday morning in hopes of seeing Gerri Lee and Rick, a couple we met at the docks in Princess Louisa, again. We managed to find them and had a good time catching up but, as we’re on a schedule, we’ll be moving on this afternoon with the the tide for Teakerne Arm in West Redonda Island where there’s another waterfall and a fresh-water lake for swimming.  It’s getting very hot now and Sally’s stressed from the heat (as are we all). With very little breeze, we haven’t been able to cool off or push any fresh air through the boat except when we’re under way and swimming sounds like a pleasant distraction for all three of us.

The portable generator is acting up (again) and David’s been out on the deck trying to fix it in the sweltering sun. Fortunately, he managed to get it working but, at this point, it looks like we’re beginning to push our luck.
