bliss: sunshine and old friends


Our next stop was Hornby Island. We enjoyed 2 days of pure relaxation. We spent our time reading, listening to music and enjoying the warm September sun. It was great! 


Getting to Quadra Island was a big-ass slog. We sailed and motored 63+ nautical miles in 11 hours. The first 4 hours were spent sailing not very far upwind, but it was a whole lot of fun!


After that, the wind died and we wanted to make sure we’d get there by sunset, we ended up motoring.
We had a blast hanging out with Andrea and the kids, (Misha and Sophie). Sam was off competing in Battle Mountain, (HPV Races).


The highlights were: Freshly picked raspberries, doing our laundry, catching up and chatting with our friends, and most of all, showers!

I’d add to that, the awesome sight of the moon rising this evening and our walk around Rebecca Spit. (I have a bit of a soft spot for this park).

Bouncy fun with M and S

Next: Desolation Sound, at last.
