Sum It Up Sunday | Rainy Days and MondaysSunday, June 19, 2016S.V. CAMBRIA
It's been a pretty quiet couple of weeks in the world of
Cambria, slowly motoring from anchorage to anchorage , Pender Harbour , Desolation Sound and now the Musket Island Marine Park . Some days were spent floating around in the kayaks, dipping our feet in the water to help stay cool but most were spent tucked below with the heater on listening to the rain fall. The Pacific High hasn't set in yet and, until it does, we'll likely see more of the same unsettled weather. It's a frustrating time of the year, the so-called shoulder season, but it always passes and summer will be here soon (I'm predicting Monday). Octopus Islands
Despite the gloomy weather, the days have passed quickly and we've fallen into a routine of sorts: boat jobs in the morning, kayaking in the afternoon, dinner served with a healthy dose of politics and a movie before bed, punctuated by busy days on shore to provision or do laundry. On the days we up anchor and move, the boat jobs take a backseat to everything else . . . all work and no play, after all.
It's been somewhat busy with boats on the water and set to get busier now that the school year has ended, so we're eager to move out of the Desolation Sound Area, one of
's most popular cruising grounds. We still don't have a real plan for this season apart from the idea of spending the months of July and August along the Central and British Columbia . We do, however, have a plan for the coming week (assuming the weather cooperates): a run up Bute Inlet. North Coast
We've been trying to make it up Bute Inlet, one of
's longest fjords, for years now but have always been too late in the season, so I'm excited that we might finally get our chance. There's not a lot of information written about it in the cruising guides nor are there many anchoring opportunities along the way, so it's hard to know what to expect. But if past experiences are anything to judge by, we're in for an exceptional week! British Columbia
David and I are definitely fjord people we can't get enough of them. How about you? If you're on a boat, where do you like to cruise? And if you're on land, where do you like to go to get in touch with nature?
