There is a secret spot in the Gulf Islands of British Columbia where one can reliably get life-altering sunsets. It's a cove called "North Cove" on the north end of Thetis island and is just south of Nanaimo. It has such spectacular sunset probably because the sun sets right over the massive paper mills of Nanaimo. The anchorage has good holding, good protection from a south wind, and is usually deserted. The reason it's deserted is because if the wind shifts from the north it's open to a lot of fetch. Ask me how I know....

All three pictures are from North Cove, taken 2 years apart.

Have you ever explored the lagoon there? We stopped for lunch one day outside the lagoon.. probably the warmest swim ever in the GI for us....

Must add North Cove to my list. I have never anchored there.
