Yeah, don't tell anybody but September and October in Desolation sound and the gulf is amazing for its solitude. I remember arriving at Prideaux Haven and expecting 200 boats like the guide book told me I would see.

Not one boat besides us. I anchored right in the middle, put out 10:1 just for the heck of it (first time in 3 months that I could really chose the scope I wanted) and enjoyed going to sleep at one end of the harbor and waking up at the other end. We had it all to ourselves for several days.

The only reason we left Desolation sound in October to return to dock living was because we didn't pack enough warm clothes (it was only going to be a 2 month trip but became 4.5 months) and I didn't have a wood stove yet. The dickenson diesel was keeping us warm but was burning up the last of our meager cash reserves....

Good times with all beauty and solitude to ourselves....

We had the same experience, the only reason we left in October was because the kids wanted to be home in time for halloween .

I'll keep an eye out for you MedSailor, next fall when we return!

June, before school lets out, is usually good too and warmer than the fall.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
