Marcia had her birthday 4 days ago and I forgot to buy her anything... So I spent a lot of time searching the web, trying to recover my stellar reputation. I was finally sucessful and in finding the perfect gift... a new car! She seemed very happy... sort of!
We departed Otter Bay with our good friends Marc and Dorothy (who have the same model boat we have), and headed for Silva Bay on Gabriola Island. This involved timing the tidal rapids at Gabriola Passage just right to keep us afloat!
We motored over to Otter Bay this morning which is another of our favorite places to visit. We coordinated our trip with some friends of ours (Marc and Dorothy Halcomb) who just cruised up the coast from California to come cruise in the great Pacific Northwest this summer. They have the exact same model boat we do (named Navigator)! We are now docked together in Otter Bay and are taking advantage of the great BBQ dinner the marina set up for the boaters. Party Time!
We finally departed pastry heaven (Chemainus) and headed over to Otter Bay this morning. We had a tough time letting go of the dock lines knowing we'd have to do without the awsome baked goods at the Utopia Bakery. Guess we are spoiled! We did think ahead a little and stocked up however! Damn we are smart!
We arrived at the cute town of Chemainus today which is one of our favorite towns. This town has the best bakery in the world. Just minutes after arrival, Marcia was a like a pastry "Blood Hound" and couldnt wait to get off the boat and out to the Utopia Bakery.
Here we are moored at the marina which is very close to a huge cargo ship getting loaded up with lumber.
