Our boating trip was mostly fun and we relaxed, read our books and ate simple meals...
The first port that we visited was Telegraph Harbour Marina on Thetis Island...probably our favourite spot.
The weather was lovely, sunny and warm during our 5 day stay and we got together with friends who live on the island.
I spent a delightful afternoon playing bridge at the Community Centre.
I wore the white scarf that I purchased in Paris at The Monoprix.
I feel particularly feminine wearing this scarf...it's got lots of volume but is light.
I wore it over top an Eileen Fisher linen tank top and some black capri length pants.
I popped on some simple pearl drop earrings and my diamond necklace.
After Thetis Island we cruised to Pender Island and our first port of call was Otter Bay.
It's a rather quaint Marina but is well protected from the straits.
Quite charming and very picturesque.
There are two pools and this one is exclusively for the adults.
(I don't know who those people are, I tried to shoot around those using the pool.)
I didn't quite manage!
We moved to Poets Cove Resort on South Pender Island and spent 4 days tied up at the dock.
Then weather was positively beastly!
We had torrential rains, thunder, lightning and hail...more rain.
Then short patches of sunshine that teased us for the next few days.
I was very grateful to be tied up to a dock and not bobbing around on anchor or a buoy.
It was an interesting/challenging/experience as we had some leaks for the first time.
The carpet in our salon got wet and stayed wet.
I am not proud when I admit that I got exasperated and at times felt downright cranky!
(at least our bed was dry!)
Our next stop was Port Browning where we joined friends and family.
Some were on boats and other were camping in the orchard.
PIDGE ~ Pender Island Disc Golf Extravaganza...
this year we played our 10th tournament...34 people played.
The littlest ones walked the course with their parents and grand parents.
We had a crab feed!
The sun came out...
Overnight the fog rolled in...
and after it lifted we left for home port in Tsehum Harbour in Sidney.
The cats and house were well taken care of while we were away.
They do seem happy to see us...
I've got a mountain of laundry to attend to so I must close for now.
I hope to catch up on my blog reading too while the machines work their magic on grime.
