Sonora Lodge, Big Bay, BCIt is also featured in one of Rolynn's books "The Last Resort" which is now in the hands of a publisher for review. (Keep your fingers crossed for her.) http://rolynnanderson.com/rolynnanderson.com/HOME.html WE anchored in Cortes Bay at the south end of Cortes Island. This positioned us for a good departure down The Straits of Georgia the next morning.
Union Steamship Marina at Snug Cove
Thursday - Saturday: We were up early to check the weather (which was good) so we headed down the east side to the straits for Hardy Island Marine Park http://www.panoramio.com/photo/39821039. about five hours away. We anchored in a tight cove that was once a rock quarry. The following morning we moved on to Secret Cove, a marina, where we had a nice diner with our friends from Seeker. http://www.panoramio.com/photo/5092042 Saturday it was a five hour run to The Union Steamship Marina in Snug Cove on Bowen Island in Howe Sound - not too far north of Vancouver BC. After two nights here it we will back track a little to Gibson's Landing (The most livable town in the world under 20,000 in 2009.) then back across the Straits of Georgia to Ganges Harbor. We will be back in Anacortes about the 5th.
