Goat Island Anchorage
Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday: After two days at Pierre’s we left Friday morning for an uneventful day and night at Waddington Bay. Saturday, we went to nearby and very pretty Goat Island anchorage at Crease Island to meet up with Crossroads and their English friends on “Cloudy Bay”, a 55’ Nordhaven. Also there were other acquaintances aboard “Silver Star”, Waka” and “Seagar”. Rolynn organized a dinghy party. We all brought drinks and snacks and tied our dinghies astern to “Cloudy Bay” for an hour or so. Later, we went aboard
“Crossroads” for dinner with Stan and Diane. The following morning Rolynn spied a black bear ambling along the beach a 100’ or so from our boat. He rolled rocks and ate salial berries until he got to the nearby point. Then he jumped in the water and swam to a small island where he spent the day sampling the flora. Near evening he swam to even smaller islet but there appeared to be fewer pickings. Tuesday morning we will head to Port McNeill where we will meet Rolynn’s sister and niece, Karen and Marni.
