We just finished two weeks in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. We’ve been going there for a number of years. We try to visit old favorites and make some new discoveries each time we visit. This year, the weather was fantastic. Some years are sunny, some are wet, some a combination (this is most common). We had sun, warm, and flat seas almost the entire time. It clouded up one afternoon, rained in the evening and through the night, and was clear and sunny the next morning. Perfect!
There is not much to talk about today. The weather took a slight turn for the worse with thick clouds and some afternoon and evening rain in the forecast. We left Thetis Island and motored three hours down to the Otter Bay Marina on North Pender Island.
I am always amazed at the number of floatplanes in the area. Most are de Havilland Beavers. None are younger than 50 or so now. True workhorses. This plane landed at the Thetis Island Marina this morning.
