B.C. Hideaways

We here on the inside waters of the British Columbia coast are blessed with cruising grounds likely unequaled anywhere in terms of sheltered water, secluded coves and a great park system as well. (Okay - others will be sure to pipe up on your own area, and good on ya)

Thought I'd share a few pics to show some of these spots, where setting up a multiple-boat raft on the hook is not a problem.

Our summer has not been a stellar one, rarely more than 3 days of sun at a stretch but it's been statistically average, which means the last two summers were well above normal for temps, sunshine hours and minimal rain.

(not sure why this uploaded links only!?)

Slightly jealous here in MD

Faster,

We pulled into Wallace Island on our way through the Gulf Islands this summer. Place was full, as it was Canada Day. Got invited over to a raft up to four Canadian boats who had been celebrating all day. It took us a while to catch up and by midnight, we had half the bunch on our boat and had a great time.

Anyway, Wallace Island was always a nice stop. Where is White Rock Cove?

White Rock Bay is one of the coves at the NW end of Jedidiah Island, between Lasqueti and Texada. Most people seem to prefer nearby Deep Bay, but we like this one just around the corner. If you can get that nook we were in, you are hiding from the NW chop that can get into the bay proper. In that photo we had about 2' under the rudders at a 3' tide, so you do have to pay attention.

Jedidiah is highly recommended, one of our favourites for sure, the entire island is a park (sold by the owners for around $6M, rather than to developers for double digits!) Old Homestead, meadows,orchards, sheep, goats, and many little one-boat nooks- it's great.
