A couple of club outings in the SF Bay Delta then off on the big one--helping a friend get his 44' trawler from SF Bay to Whidby Island, WA. Four on the delivery crew, planning a leisurely 13 day trip (many stopovers.) I plan to do some writing along the way and will see about some kind of log to post on TF.

PS Enjoyed meeting T's FlyWright at the Mandeville Tip fireworks extravaganza.

It was great to meet you, too, Ted! Wish I got a pic of you and your friend's woodies cruising by. After a couple nights at Mandeville and a great fireworks show, we headed back to the secret cove with Cary'd Away for 2 nights and aa night in Threemile Slough near Brannan Island State Park. What a great week! Unfortunately, this is the last pic of my pink FlyWright hat. On the last night, a wind gust sent it to Davey Jones' locker. We had a moment of silence onboard followed by a brief period of cussing.



Thanks for the great hat, dwhatty!

Spent last night at Drumlummond Bay at the entrance to Foch Lagoon (Douglas Channel, north coast BC, Canada) in order to reconnoiter the rapids which guard its entrance.

Plan on heading into Foch this weekend, at slack (!!!!!) low tide, which is about 1.5 hours after low tide in Kitimat. Also plan on leaving at high water slack...this way we can be absolutely sure it's slack without going for a wild ride, of which there are many scrotum shriveling local legends

There's a large flat boulder beside the middle of the rapids, and it made me pause to wonder how many people have stood there in the last 10,000 years or so, to watch in amazement just like I did.

How's the weather there?
We were over last winter and nothing but wind.
Have considered summer but afraid of hurricanes.
Input appreciated.

I'm glad you two crazy kids are having fun. I've enjoyed following along on facebook. Thanks for having me along!

Tomorrow I'm heading north to the Adirondacks to do a bit of light camping with the family. I've got four, count 'em four, kayaks on the roof of my VW GTI right now, which I'm frankly a little too proud of.

The Admiral wants to stop at Fonda. As Henry Fonda was born there. So on our way back, we will let you know what are our plans. We always like the opportunity to meet people!

Kindest regards, Lise and Normand

Not really a voyage, but this afternoon we're taking out my dentist and his wife all all of their staff which consists mainly of 20-something girls. We'll cruise up the Columbia for a few miles, anchor so they can swim for awhile and serve them a buffet style dinner. We start at 4:00 and they want to be done by around 8:00-8:30.

Wifey B: Don't tell her but Henry Fonda was born in Nebraska.....

His ancestors did establish the town of Fonda.

Wifey B: I can't say where we are because we cruised in yesterday and enjoying it even though there was such outrage on TF that we'd actually want to go to such a pathetic, dismal, gross, ugly, bad place.

Well...didn't go into Foch (fosh) Lagoon this weekend as there are 30 knot winds forecasted for tomorrow so we decided discretion is the better part of valour and we'll try some other weekend, especially since my Mother-in-law and a 7 month old baby were coming along.

Also, the lower photo in post #203 was a 9 foot tide and tomorrows will be a 16 foot tide. Much more mayhem would ensue, delaying slack at the narrow entrance, forcing us out of the lagoon when the tide is running against those 30 knot winds.

Oh well. Went for a short jaunt today to Gobiel Bay and hiked a ways up the little creek there. Lots of pink salmon milling about waiting for high tide to get into the creek.

Foch can wait.

I like it! You must know them of old. Your boat seemed completely unbothered by the wake.
At the risk of controversy, what kind of anchor is that on the bow?

Also not a grand voyage but we are heading home this afternoon after a couple of nights out, probably the last overnight weekend before we put "MATHILDA" on the dry for winter.

Ted, have you left on your trip up the coast?
