eryka is on a distinguished road
the evil side of Back Creek

Actually, we prefer to think of it as the "fiscally responsible" side of Back Creek ... at least, that was the case when we were marina shopping several years ago, you paid a premium to walk to downtown instead of dinghying around.

BTW, went on our first sail of the season yesterday <*gloat gloat*> although we only stayed out a couple of hours - the wind over the 40-something degree water was still chilly. What everyone's been saying about new sails is true - I figure we got a full knot of extra boat speed compared to similar conditions with our old sails. This even though we downsized our headsail from a 130% to a 110%. Wheeeee!
