Myself and two friends made another short trip one Saturday with a nice breeze blowing from the northwest. The summer sun hits with more force and some of us need to cover more than others. It may look it but its not cold.
We cruised out to Bacon cove and dropped sails for lunch near a swimming hole that ran into the sea. The lunch didn't survive long with us hovering over it and the sun was beaming down upon us. With the little crank radio playing some tunes we decided to have a nap. Bill and Adrian took the front floor area where there was lots of room to spread out, while I rolled up the life jackets and bunked down in the cockpit. Soon enough the snores were coming from the front of the boat, I was barely settled in when I first heard them. We spent a couple hours catching some rays and listening to the radio and finally growing restless we hauled anchor and moved on.
The afternoon wind was quite light for a change and was blowing only about 5-10 knots in little puffs. but we still made good time in skirting the coastline.
Later on in the evening the wind just quieted to a whisper and as we neared the marina I dropped sails and started the motor. We cruised under motor power around the harbor for a bit and took a look at the salmon river on the other side of the point in Holyrood. The water is shallow but a lot of salmon run that way trying to jump the rapids that are near the shoreline.
All in all another good run out the bay just having some fun. And a good nap will never hurt anyone either.
