Vancouver Island and Desolation Sound
Cruising along the costal waters of Vancouver Island has been really pretty.
One afternoon, the crew went to the beach...
And set up a beach BBQ lunch for the guests in style.
This was my first Canadian beach experience and was surprisingly warm with loads of sand dollars and jellyfish in the water. The big boat anchored way out in this picture is home.
Many others were out enjoying the beach as well.
Our talented chefs whipped up yet another culinary delight (including kangaroo kabobs!).
Back on the boat, the view from my porthole on our way to our next destination, Desolation Sound.
Curiously dubbed, Desolation Sound was breathtakingly beautiful.
Pictures don't really do it any justice.
Every chance I could get, I tried to look out the window as we moved through the Sound. Most of my work is inside so I don't often get to see where we are unless we're anchored somewhere for a while.
Heading towards our anchor spot for the night.
And here's another late afternoon view out the porthole.
