We left Tranquility Inlet for the technical assistance provided by Xantrex to wayfarers with inverter issues. With a need to run our generator for 8 hours and then talk again with our new friends, we found a pretty little anchorage near Tofino sheltered from the winds in three directions.
Everything was perfect…until the max ebb when we were reminded that looks are not everything. Beautiful Riley Island that had so courteously sheltered us from the winds shot heavy current on either of the boat. It was as if Davey Jones had risen from his locker to drag our anchor chain back and forth across the bottom. With each swing I peaked at the trees to ensure that they had not repositioned on the return trip. Early in the morning we ordered the new inverter and are spending tonight in God’s Pocket. It may be raining in God’s Pocket and not so pretty Davey Jones does not live here!
