Nice, it helps keep the reason for me buying "Oh Joy" in focus when life's crap get's in the way.

John,
What is that beautiful boat you are sailing? Your pics make me want to move up your way. Breathtaking. Does the dog really enjoy the boat? Mine would NOT! And to see your companion sailing the boat makes me wish mine were more into sailing (another thread altogether). Theres still time.......thanks again!

Great post John! Thanks so much for sharing. I can't wait to make that trip when we hope to be living 7 mos out of the year up in the Sound. By the way, we left the dogs home when we cruised the San Juans a couple of years ago. It seemed like there were several islands where you couldn't go ashore and I wondered what I would do if the dogs were along. Any advice from a local?

Bardo- the boat is a 1978 Northsea 34. We've had it since '91 and have done a lot of work on it. It just came out of the paint shop this summer. Good boat for here.
Does the dog like the boat? I try not to get into his head too much-issues. He doesn't have a lot of choice, but yeah, he seems pretty happy no matter where he is. He really likes the dinghy ride to shore more than sailing, but he likes sailing more than riding in a power boat(so I guess we'll keep him). He's pretty cheap entertainment.

SailorPam- most of the state parks allow dogs on leash, we get stuck sometimes and "cheat" by staying below high tide line on private prop. It's an added dimension to sailing, but we're kind of stuck with him, sort of like when the kids were small. As long as you clean up after them, we haven't had too much trouble.

John - your boat looks great, awesome pictures of a place that is way up on our list of impressive destinations.

Glad to see you had a decent day in the end. Sorry you had to motor. We were there last year and had a roaring 20-25 knot following breeze right up to the last corner - and in Queen's Reach is was flat calm, gorgeous.

We went through Malibu with a few knots of flood, and into Princess Louisa just as the sun was getting behind the mountains - a breathtaking sight.

Pictures like those just bring home how fortunate we are in BC, and make it easy to claim that we have the best cruising grounds - period. And, as impressive as all this is, it's just scratching the surface.

Faster- there are several lifetimes worth of beautiful places to explore in Washington, BC, and Alaska. Laurie and I have decided to try and see as much of it as possible, as soon as possible. We hope to be spending between two and five months of the year cruising. I'm afraid we won't get to see more than a small fraction of it. Hope to run into you one day (figuratively). John
