James Bay to Genoa Bay

Morning in James Bay was fantastic. Like a still pond. It still amazes me that this much water can be so calm.mv Archimedes James Bay morning

We pulled anchor mid morning and set off for Genoa Bay. It’s not a big trip. Just an hour and a half or so.

Along the way, we took a turn through Annette Cove just to refresh our memory. We’ve been there in the past, but it was a long time ago. It’s a nice, well protected anchorage. The entrance is narrow. There are a few rocks on the sides and one in the middle.

We stopped at Russell Island for lunch. So did the HMCS Ottawa. I think they were just turning around.

We did not go ashore at Russell Island. Just anchored and lounged around for a while. Like everywhere else, very peaceful and quiet.

We arrived at Genoa bay mid afternoon and tied up to “C” dock. That’s us on the left.

The Cowichan – Genoa Bay ferry came by a few times.

It was suggested to us that choosing to eat anywhere other than the restaurant at the marina would be a mistake. Good advice. The Genoa Bay Cafe is really good. Kim had Halibut. I had Scallops.
