One highlight was the official renaming ceremony of Adagio, Monica and Marcelo’s new to them Beneteau 343.

We were treated to an AMAZING Portuguese Crab Feast !  Thanks to Maria

ed. note : I am not sure where all those ducks came from or their significance to the ceremony. ( Must be an “N” dock thing)

Here’s a little slide show of the  ceremony that Marcelo skillfully mastered.

After a few days we left Prevost for Bedwell and Poets Cove with a slight diversion to see Turn Point from the water

Then it was time to head to our next destination but first we took the “Big Boats” under the bridge.

This was the first of a few “bucket list” things I wanted to do.
Thanks to the crew on Breakaway and UnTide for their help guiding the way!

Tod Inlet is on the back side of Butchart Gardens in Brentwood Bay BC.

The land was a cement plant and is now a Provincial Park

Although it was very busy, I was impressed with Tod Inlet. Great trails to walk and very peaceful.

A very nice, slow cruise through Samsom Narrows and ending at Telegraph Harbour

We had a great time at Wallace and definitely will return. It is so peaceful and feels like you are a million miles away. It was another “bucket list” thing for me and it lived up to all that I had heard about it.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

From Wallace we made a quick stop at Montague and a trip to the Hummingbird Pub was in order.

As the weather was changing decided to head home a day early.
