It’s been a long winter break. We moved the boat from the marina in Ganges over to a new mooring in Long Harbour. It’s well sheltered there, easier for us to access, and it gives us faster access to more interesting cruising grounds.The first cruise of the season was out past Walker Hook and then to Wallace Island. Like too many of the well known landing spots here in the Gulf Islands, Princess Cove is a bit overrun and littered from too many visitors, or at least careless visitors. But right next door, we found Panther Cove, a short walk away. It was beautiful, with a gravel and shell beach and lots of big driftwood logs.
