We are headed north of Maple Bay and have been under way just over an hour when I took this shot.
I am quite pleased with my new Tommy Hilfiger watch which is water resistant.
Mr. HB got water in his "good" watch and we had to have it rebuilt which turned out to be pricey so...
we both have new watches as we didn't want to risk it.
We decided to go up to Thetis Island as we have numerous friends and acquaintances there which we like to visit.
The Marina has been in business for a long time and Mr. HB remembers going there as a youngster.
He found a picture of himself on the dock wearing a captains hat when he was sorting out his parents photos...
Telegraph is a favourite spot for us too as we have spent many a week tied up to the dock relaxing, reading and walking on beautiful and pristine country roads.
There is a Farm Stand quite close to the Marina where fresh produce and frozen island grown lamb is sold.
Howling Wolf Farm
We eat very simply onboard...
salads and meat or fish make up the bulk of our dinners.
Our cockpit area is cozy and snug.
Keeping everything ship shape is important.
We are having Berber carpet installed on the deck as it is easy to snap into place.
You can see two of the snaps near the right side of the door.
It is much cooler underfoot than the fiberglass and will be easy to vacuum to keep it tidy.
The weather was good for the most part but we experienced several squalls bringing warm showers.
I chose one of these periods of downpour to take my walk!
The Pot of Gold Coffee Company has been a Thetis Island institution...
we used to buy our coffee from them and they shipped it to us.
Memories of chocolate covered coffee beans and roasted peanuts still hold us...
The cheery entrance beckons...
you can visit here.
I was surprised and delighted to see a heart shaped puddle on my walk...
a beautiful reminder of the rain.
Next the waterfront Thetis Island garden estate that I was fortunate enough to tour with a friend...
