Thetis Island and Union Steam Ship Company on Bowen Island

we checked into Canada at Bedwell Harbour, (yes, the Canadian's use the French spelling) on Monday. On the way to Bedwell, sailed comfortably on a close reach, it was fantastic. We stayed in Annette Bay that night.

The next day we looked for wind out in the Straight of Georgia, but is was calm. We motored up and through Porlier Pass to one of our favorite anchorages on Thetis Island (voted, by us for the best sunsets in the Gulf Isl).

Today is Wednesday and we again tried to find wind on the Straight of Georgia but none to be found. We motored to Bowen Island (near Vancouver B.C.) and are docked at the Union Steam Ship Company Marina. It is owned by the parents of a good friend of Kristine's (Mel's daughter). We had a nice diner with them and friends of theirs Gary and Jean of Daisy. A good evening for sure.

Here is a picture of Mazu and the beautiful sunset at Thetis Island. We miss all of our friends and family and we are having a great time!!

Very beautiful picture of the boat. I shall have to look up Thetis Island on a map. Did you know that Thetis was a sea goddess and the mother of Achilles?

Where are you now?
