Top Ten Lists Way Back Wednesday

Top Ten Blog Posts of 2016

Wednesday, January 04, 2017S.V. CAMBRIA


It’s Way Back Wednesday, an opportunity to dig through the files and pull out an old blog post to shed some new light on it. For the last couple of months, I’ve been highlighting anchorages from our Destination Series, but I thought I’d do something a little different today. So, instead of one post that I picked, here are your top ten favourites (based on the number of hits) from 2016:


Coming in at number ten is Keeping Up Appearances, a recap of our month on the dock in Ocean Falls this past summer. 


What a Drag | The Realities of Cruising, the first-hand account of Cambria dragging anchor at night came in at number nine.
 

At number eight, Dreams for Sale, the blog post that finally lets the cat out of the bag: We’re putting Cambria up for sale and hope to buy a narrowboat to cruise the canals of England, Scotland and Wales


I is for Investing in the Future | Solar Panels, a blog post that was part of the A to Z Challenge, came in at number seven and discusses the benefits of a solar panel array on a boat.


The number six spot belongs to one from our Destination Series: Destination | Bute Inlet.


Why Sail to Southeast Alaska? Ten Reasons You Should Go is number five (the title speaks for itself).


Keeping to the same subject, number four is Sailing to Southeast Alaska | Ten Things to Know Before You Go

Number three is a more recent post and, again, part of our Destination Series: TheBest of Desolation Sound (spoiler alert: there’s a lot to like).


Number two, once again, comes from our Destination Series and is one of British Columbia’s most popular spots: Destination | Princess Louisa Inlet.


And coming in at number one, my personal favourite and yours, A Walk on the WildSide | Downtown Ocean Falls, a pictorial walk through the popular ghost town.

Thanks to all of you who have read the blog over the last year and made this list possible. We really do appreciate you stopping by.

  1. I remember these! That photo of Cambria in your What a Drag post is one of my favorites. I hope we get to see some of these places before heading south. Also, I am really looking forward to your canal boat journey. Who knows? By the time you are finished and ready to sell that boat, we may be ready to buy it from you. It's a dream of mine, too. And it would be a nice break from ocean sailing. So sedate a pace! So peaceful. Just as an aside, I'm binge watching 'Keeping Up Appearances' just now. British comedy at its finest.

    1. You've got to love the British sense of humour . . . it's just a shame David missed out. ;-)

  2. All were great posts! I don't know anything about canal boating, I'm looking forward to learning vicariously.

    1. That's funny because I'm looking forward the cruising season to begin so I can live vicariously through you guys as you leave Wrangell. :-)

  3. Great selection, Stephanie. We chose well! :-) I think the number one might be there partly because you entered it for Jo's walks. :-) My amount of readers goes up when I do that as well. I think.

    1. I think you're right, Liesbet. We also had several readers who used to live in Ocean Falls when it was a booming coastal community. Some of them left comments and it was really interesting to hear their reactions to how it looks today.

  4. Great posts! My favorite is Princess Louisa Inlet. I admire how you numbered your top ten from ten to one, like you should. Matt did a lot of giggling when I posted Top Ten from #1-#10.

  5. I'm with Donna - I'm really looking forward to learning more about boating on canals once you guys get over there. The blog post where you spilled the news was one of my faves last year because it sounds like such a fantastic adventure you guys have to look forward to.
