Our season came to an end a tat early this year but what a wonderful summernit was.  In late July, our friends, Starr and Glen, from Peace River, Alberta joined us for 5 days.  Delightful people who are just the salt of the earth.

Spectacular British Columbia

Gardner Canal is said to be the most spectacular fjord in North America.  We must concur.  Debra and Ralph joined us for our fourth trip and their second trip.  It is a remote area that has no outside contact including the Canadian Coast Guard.  But the risk is worth the cautionary measures.
