Now if you lived in the Pacific North West and you said you went out on rainy days, I'd be really impressed; particularly in November through February.
April has arrived here and is considered one of the best months to sail in and around the greater Vancouver
, BC area. Most boaters don't go out yet so all the popular haunts are still quiet, yet the temp outside is warmer and the day light hours longer.
gossip here is still about the sinking of the BC Ferry
- Queen of the North - my favourite ferry
; this occurred a few weeks ago. Needless to say the gossip centres around how and why it happened and how it has impacted the Northern communities it supported. The ferry was a pocket cruiser
and was adapted to our more treacherous Northern waters; it will be difficult to find another like her. The communities not only survive on the tourist traffic the ferry brought, but the trucks with community commercial
goods which are also vital.
Cheers and happy to have you on board.
