Montague Harbour to Ganges

Fog was the word of the morning. Lots of it. We could barely see the boats two buoys away.

The radar shows all the boats on buoys and at anchor.

The fog is starting to clear.

The fog was gone by 10:00. We packed up and headed for Ganges to do a little grocery shopping. Along the way, we took some time to re-calibrate the autopilot. Just doing circles and zig zags. It must look a bit odd to the boats passing us.

We got a slip out on the end at the Salt Spring Island Marina. After the holiday, and with a bit of rain and clouds the last few mornings, the marina is pretty empty. Again, good for us.

We motored the dingy over to the dingy dock for the grocery shopping. It’s right by the store. I brought the groceries back and Kim wandered around town for a while.

There’s really not much else to report. Ganges. Shopping. A bit of boat cleaning, some water, and we are on our way later this morning to Wallace Island. With luck, there will be few other boats there as well.
