In Pictures, Part 1
By Michael

Since leaving Victoria two months ago, we've been overwhelmed by all we've seen and experienced. Now that we've reached our northern-most point at 59 degrees latitude, we're going to head south, back to Mexico. I thought this was a good time to pause and reflect the past two months chronologically, in the skads of pictures that never made it on to the blog. Check back tomorrow for the next group. Enjoy!

Former (and future) cruiser Heather Tiszai with
her two daughters, Juniper and Pearl. Heather met
us with cold beer on a pier in Bellingham, took us
for a tour of stunning Whatcom Park, and hosted a
back-yard fire-pit BBQ potluck with her friends.

Early in the season, we were able to use the facilities at Poet's Cove
for free and had them all to ourselves. (Pender Island, BC)

We filled our tanks here with water that erupted from a spring and gurgled
down a rock wall we sidled up to in Del Viento.

  1. Gorgeous photos in this series of 3 posts! Fun to see you near Sabine Channel almost exactly a year before we were up there with "Blue" in 2014! Continuing to enjoy reading all your posts - playing catch up with history.
