Sailing on the Salish Sea

The weather was looking fine, so my friends announce they’d be sailing from the Sunshine Coast to Bowen on Saturday (yesterday) morning. I would meet them at the Mount Gardner Dock, and sometime later we’d end up in Snug Cove. To avoid using a car, I decided to put a few things in my backpack and walk half way around Mt Collins to the rendezvous. That brisk stroll was a pleasant one-hour walk.

All morning the forecast had included wind warnings to small craft, so at first we zipped east through Collingwood Channel. The pictures were taken when conditions became calmer.

It was lovely to be out in Howe Sound. Here, the sun is above Bowen Island. The low dark mount in the foreground is Mt. Collins, and behind is Mt. Gardner.
