We stayed four days in Port McNeill after dropping off Karen and Marni. The wind was blowing so we stayed a couple of days longer than we had originally planned.
Friday and Saturday: We made the three hour crossing of Queen Charolette Straits in calm water to arrive at Ladyboot inlet on Eden Island, one of our favorite spots. The next day we moved on to Moore Bay which once again proved to be a good spot for large prawns. Rolynn breaded them in a coconut batter. They were WONDERFUL. It was 90+ degrees so we closed up the boat and ran the air conditioner. We are so spoiled.
Sunday and Monday: We headed up Kingcome Inlet to Belisille Sound, a new spot for us. It is long and deep with only one anchorage – off an abandoned indian reservation. Monday is was a little nook behind Cecil Island at the mouth of Greenway Sound – a beautiful spot with wide vistas.
Tuesday – Thursday: We are at Sullivan Bay waiting for our California friends on “Seeker”. Sullivan Bay is located in the northern Broughtons and is a long established community of homes (one with a helicopter on the roof), marina, store and resturant all on floats. Get a hole-in-one on the water driving range and earn a night’s free moorage. We are counting on Rolynn.
