Pender Harbour

Saying Good-Bye

Wednesday, September 30, 2009S.V. CAMBRIA

We dropped our lines at 9:30 this morning to make way for Pender Harbour. We were the last boat to leave Princess Louisa Inlet, everyone else having gone hours and days before. As we motored up-inlet, the snow-capped mountains came into full-view and left us with an amazing sight. Once again, it’s incredibly quiet on the water and we were the only boat in sight until we rounded the corner from Jervis Inlet into the opening to Pender Harbour.

Back in the land of technology, we received the phone call we were dreading tonight. Mike and Lisa from Blue Aweigh rang. They’re in Port Angeles, Washington and will sail to Neah Bay tomorrow to wait for a weather window to round Cape Flattery and head home to Ventura, California for a few months to prepare the boat and themselves for their next adventure. Saying good-bye is the hardest part about this lifestyle and, this time, it’s more difficult than the rest. We’ll miss them greatly and wish them a safe passage home with fair winds and following seas….
