A bucketlist item for us is to anchor in a cove next to a glacier, like m/v Dirona did here:

Here's a reasonably accessible place to do that: the Reid Inlet toward the NW end of Glacier Bay. We often anchor there on a GB trip, and then head further north to ogle the fancier and more active, but un-anchorable, Johns Hopkins and Margerie glaciers.

This is exactly the type of anchorage that we have in mind. Truly beautiful pictures.

Unfortunately it's 1000 miles from my home port as the crow flies... probably nearly twice that if I routed a navigable path.

The Gulf of St-Laurent in eastern Canada... that is where I learned to sail and I can't wait to go back cruising... Short season but well worth

Yes few seem to realize just how far it really is. We went from LaConner to Ketchikan in 22 days w one weather day out. We wern't dallying like we were cruising. That's why I titled my Alaska trip threads "A Long way Home". And at 6 knots it's a bit longer yet. But longer lasting is ... more fun.


Love your Thi pic Craig and would like to see that red powered canoe up close.

Is it bad to be exactly where you want to be?

The north coast of BC has more than a lifetimes worth of boating for us, especially when you include innumerable creeks to explore, mountains to climb, alpine lakes to visit, etc...

Anyone got any pics of Gulf of St-Laurent to post? Would love to see them. Always wondered why loopers don't take that route and to the St. Lawrence Seaway.

With the option open a few years ago, I made the choice, PNW for North America. NZ second choice but oh that high price of fuel over there. Ditto high fuel prices for Europe.

We have no interest if foreign ports, so as far as "Go anywhere you want" - we do. We've splashed at well over 100 different ramps in our trailerable boats. Here's a few recent places:

We are planning our next voyage to New Zealand, through the South Pacific. Our intended route, after leaving Hawaii is:

Palmyra Atol
Washington Island
Fanning Island
Kiribati
Marquesas Islands
Tuamotus Islands
Tahiti
Moorea
Cook Islands (Rarotonga)
Tonga
Fiji
New Zealand

The South Pacific is the main reason we purchased our boat. Every one of these places are on my bucket list.
