NEW NEIGHBORHOOD

Well, we are STILL at Poet's Cove ... partly because the wind is still up so we don't want to cruise to Cabbage Island in it, and also because ... well,like I said before, it's a hard place to leave!

We did move on to a buoy, though, instead of being anchored, so we're in a 'new neighborhood.' And we also went on the Wind Walker equivalent of a little road trip... we dinghied from S. to N. Pender through the 'canal' (that was man-made several decades ago). Here's the new view, and a shot of us on our buoy with the resort in the background now. Oh, and we watched the fuel barge come and go the other day, too... (Remember that you can click on the images to see them bigger...)



Here's a pictorial of our road trip ...





This wireless thing is SO frustrating ... everything takes twice as long! And I can download and read my email, but can't respond to anything or send it, for some reason. And this computer won't recognize my mouse when I'm on the battery.... whine, whine, whine.

So ... yesterday we saw a tall ship out in the channel, and decided to run out in the dinghy and check it out.... turned out to be Victoria's own Pacific Grace, but we'd never been this close to it under full sail... it was lovely!



Then we took the dinghy over to check out this amazing midden, and to cool off!




Tomorrow we ARE hoping to move on to Cabbage Island, and I will be out of wireless range for several days then... I love all your comments and emails, by the way! We'll be back to civilization again no later than a week from today if I disappear for awhile... :-)
