Ah. That was last night? Last night was pretty. I hope this weather lasts. I can't see my baker, in right by the ferry. I was anchoring last time I was here over by the UW labs but I wanted a change of pace.

Re: Ganges Suggestions

It just seems more artificial than Friday harbor. And it's smaller and the music is all really, really old people music. And nobody was friendly. I've been waves at today probably ten times. I dontthink people on salt spring even acknowledged my exeistence. I'm glad I'm jot in the gulf is the anymore. The only part of my trip I haven't like. I think I was in a bad loos that week because of them.

Friday harbor is just better in every way and has more character. Ganges seemed like they threw it up in the 90's for tourists with nothing to do.

And the sailing is terrible because not only are there 100 crap pots per square foot of water the valley into Ganges is super narrow and blocks alot if the wind.

I guess it's not like the worst place but I can't see anything to recommend. I'm in front of Friday harbor right now. I'd go there instead.

We always enjoy Ganges,( but we don't swim there ) and try to get onto the Kanaka dock too, right in front of Thrifty's and, of course, the Tree House. Last time we were there the owner's 8 or 9 yr old son did a terrifically entertaining standup bit.. had us all rolling.
