Jedediah and Pender

We had yet another fantastic sail on Saturday with the persistent south winds -- through Dodd Narrows, past Nanaimo, and across the Strait of Georgia to Jedediah Island, a beautiful provincial park. We hiked, kayaked, swam, met fellow Oregonians Jack and Lucy on Wy'East, and shared two great evenings with new friends Gary and Marilyn on Stella. A tough place to leave, but the wind has switched back to the NW, so we have to get a move on. It will be much tougher sledding the rest of the way to Desolation.
A rough but short beat across Malaspina Strait this morning brought us to Pender Harbour, on what is at least for today, truly the "Sunshine Coast." While I update the blog and check emails, Vicki is at the store. Winds are forecast to rise to 20-30 by this afternoon, so we may stay here tonight.
