Portland Island escape
What a weekend! Two days of sailing around the beautiful Gulf Islands. Saturday we sailed with the other boat owners - two couples with whom we're good friends. We sailed over to Pender Island and ate lunch at Poet's Cove resort. Delicious and delightful.
Yesterday we took our youngest daughter and a friend to Portland Island, just a short sail, anchored in Princess Bay and hiked around the island. All the textures on the beaches are amazing. This is some dried sea plant lying on a rocky beach. There's beautiful slate on this island, I picked up one large piece that was as thin as cardstock.
Isn't this rock texture amazing?
The girls explored the intertidal pools and barnacled rocks. Just two weeks and these two are off on a 5-week European adventure. Is Mom nervous? No, not really, but they look so young.
