West Coast

...of Vancouver Island, that is. Set out for Sooke this morning, knowing 25 knot winds were forecast in the Strait of J de F. Sure enough, right at noon. A hard right put me in Esquimalt. No space at the Can Forces Yacht Club, so I'm anchored out in 17' over mud, savoring a ham, havarti and kimchee sandwich washed down with a dry Okanogan cider.

Eventual plan is several days kayaking off the Mother - ship in Barkley Sound. Windy says good passage-making wx tomorrow.

I really don't envy you right now, you've got problems...

Might need some future gastro/rectal surgery from that kimchee addiction; I've seen it before.

I as a rule don't eat things that have been left to rot underground for 6 months or more; just bad microbiological policy. I worked for a S. Korean company for several years in the 90s, and for a private firm afterward doing business there. As much as I do in fact LOVE Korean food, I can't handle real Kimchee. And I collected some funny stories working around that/hiding it from my co-workers and clients.

Other than that, sounds lovely!

Kimchee, condiment of the 21st Century. Makes an excellent martini also.

OMG, you are just being cruel now. As a recovering Martini fan and kimchi survivor, that just sounds insane!

Perfectly calm, sea like glass all the way down the Strait of JdeF.

which means...fog! 1/2 mile from Race Rocks to Sooke. Not dense enough to dissuade hundreds (no exaggeration)of little sport fishermen pursuing the wily and elusive salmon.

If you are on and around Vancouver Island, get with the proper apple cider program, stop that Okanagan nonsense: https://www.merridale.ca/

All I'm getting is you guys eat and drink to good on board. Where's the PB&J with milk or Banana sandwich on white bread with mayo and a glass of sweet black or orange tea. That's my meal plan on board for the weekends. OK, I was on a J boat fishing for bass and panfish.

I had salmon frittata for brunch today.

Tonight, the more plebian baked potato smothered in canned chili topped with grated cheddar and onion.
...with a martini, of course.

vodka martini: a misnomer.

chocolate martini: an atrocity.

No. According to all I've read, I'm going in the wrong direction. Just trying to get to Bamfield for a few days of kayaking, then back to Victoria to pick up wife, sister, etc.

Hope to make the 75 miles from Sooke tomorrow; supposed to blow on Tuesday.
