This year our first stop was Prevost Harbor and Stuart Island State Park
Prevost would be the meeting spot for Breakaway, Abraxis, Adagio and Untide!
We walked, hiked, kayaked,played lots of games, relaxed, walked again and dinghy rafted for many “happy hours”
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
Poets Cove Marina
We took the Dinghy’s under the bridge to Port Browning for some needed supplies.
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!
We slowly cruised around the East Side of North Pender and arrived in Otter Bay. Adagio and Abraxis cruised up the West Side.
Here’s a short video of Breakaway and UnTide cruising up Navy Channel
We spent 2 night s at Otter Bay. There was Golfing, More dinghy rides, dog walking and more great weather.
Next Up was TOD INLET
Thanks to Phil we were able to Anchor, stern Tie and Raft as a group
The water was so warm, everyone swam even the dogs!
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.

We left Abraxis and Freeboard who headed for home and headed North
A very nice, slow cruise through Samsom Narrows and ending at Telegraph Harbour
We spent 2 nights there and headed to Wallace Island, where we re-joined Adagio

Here is a link to the book “Once Upon an Island”
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.
It was a great 14 days on the water with great friends! Lots of really good memories !!
