Day 8 to Sidney Spit

off to Sidney Spit about 20 nm just East of the city of Sydney where the WA state ferries call. Winds calm so called on the diesel and headed north about 20nm. The protected Spit bay had mooring buoys and easy night there. Set a crab pot and one red rock crab. Good walking trails ashore via our dinghy powered by oars. Kind of fun to not use a motor. The departure music was Peter Boyer’s contemporary Symphony 1. A lot of sailors go ashore to hike. This was a good warm up for the Gulf Islands.

  1. Gary,
    Great to hear about your voyage. You are close to Pender Island, BC. Worthwhile stops in Bedwell Harbour and Otter Bay.
    Great Ann and your security guard dog, too.
