and time flies by...




Well, well, well. It's now August 18! (This happens to be Kyra's 18 year anniversary living in B.C.) The Summer has flown by: We have worked on the boat, sailed the boat, worked on the boat, sailed and worked on the... You get the gist.


Life on Nyon is good, sometimes our projects become overwhelming so we pretend they don't exist for a while, until a new burst of motivation takes us forward... Refinishing all the wood is still going on, as is fixing the cabin top - readying for paint, and fixing the cracks in the deck (fiberglassing, a new skill for Kyra)... and so it goes.

Rick, hanging out with Rico the dog.
He's a frequent visitor who lives at our dock.


We took our friends Kate and Dana along for a weekend sail.

Kate perfected the art of
lounging in the hammock.


Lunch on the foredeck.

JULY

My friend Leah came along to Beecher Bay.


Here is Beecher Bay


We were anchored
right next to Alyard Farm.

One end of my favourite
coastal hike (East Sooke Park)


This makes me think of my friend
Karina's
beautiful Kelp paintings.


Leah was loving our Gennaker
