Refuge Cove to Heriot Bay

Sailing Toward the End

    Our time together was coming to a close. We sailed away from Refuge Cove toward our final destination. Two days left. So much left to say and do. August705.jpg (47015 bytes)

We had a wonderful sail past schooners and cruise ships, to the same bay we spent our first night in a little more than a week before.

We arrived at Rebecca Spit just as the sun was setting. We had hoped that we could get there earlier and explore Quadra Island more. But I do have a bad habit of sitting in the calm and waiting for the wind. We miraculously found a space on the public dock in Hariot Bay We went for a walk through "town" and I bought a great fishing had and some new sunglasses. These, along with my bushy beard, completed my new look. Jimmy Buffet, meets Jerry Garcia, with a sprinkle of Grizzly Adams. It works for me… After our walk we went to dinner and got a taste of the local flavor. This was truly a beautiful place. The sun set as kayakers returned from their day’s adventures. This is a place I would like to return to someday.

It's a small world after all. It's a small small world.
