Headed to Sidney for brightwork work

We left Poulsbo early last Friday morning headed for Sidney, BC. Our destination was Avalon Brightwork in Sidney. It’s time for a little brightwork TLC on our old boat.

Sidney to Garrison Bay

We are headed back to the US today. Sadly, this starts the trip home. We’ll still have a few nice days on the boat ahead, just not what we’ve experienced the last ten days or so.

Morning in Sidney. We are the small boat on the dock full of big boats. Oddly, most seem to be from California. I cleaned the boat a bit. Kim went to town. We left when she came back.

Genoa Bay to Sidney

Sadly, the end of our trip is nearing. Tomorrow we cross back into the US. Our last night in Canada is in Sidney. That’s just a short hop back to customs in Roche Harbor. One more night in the islands.

Shortly thereafter, it was time for us to make the short hop over to Sidney.
