I reckon that was a stunt devised by you two simply to give this thread a bump.

I'm shocked to the very core than you would even think this way...we're not like you blokes down there...up here everything's above board and then some...everything, honesty is what makes us tick. Well, ok, sometimes not but in this case, above bored all the way.

bump!!!

Well if two such good and honest citizens of that fine former jewel in her majesty's crown say it is so then so it must be ....

Well Jedediah was every bit worth the cruise south. Been here before but always just passing through. We decided to hit the Texada Boat Club in Van Anda the first night. In the morning we got a nice push down the east side of Texada and around the bottom with a nice beam reach across to Bull Passage.

This is a wonderful part of the west coast to say the least and quite different than only a stones throw north. These islands are quite wind swept judging by the tree fall and I can only imagine the winters here.

This is the old homestead in Home Bay, we hiked here from Deep Bay.



The wild sheep on Jedediah Island. These guys are all over the place, I wonder where they get water, never did figure that out.



Wild goats behind my boat...Stern tied in Deep Bay. We hiked through the bush looking for these beasts catching obscured sights here and there but to our surprise, when we sat in the cockpit later on for drinks they show up clear as a bell.





Lasqueti Island Government Dock looking down from the bar. We had good intentions to hike across the island but never made it much past the bar short of a quick hike up the road a bit. We anchored just around the point to the North and paddled here. Nice place and very interesting people.



Help yourself and pay what they ask...roadside cookie shack with a french twist. Honesty is the best policy on Lasqueti Island just up from the False Bay Government Dock.





As far as I can tell, most people don't have plates on the vehicles here. I've noticed that on many islands.



And jury-rig fenders are OK.

I like the way this guy thinks. He already has the tow strap rigged and ready to go.

Nice post Steve... glad you enjoyed Jedidiah.

We've actually never gone ashore on Lasqueti other than a quick step off at False Bay probably 20 years ago.. will have to follow up on that one.

Did you manage to find the path to the peak??

Thanks Ron, it was nice to get my wings out for a wide open run both ways. Jedediah is a perfect stop for a run to Vancouver or the other way.

I found the path (thanks) but didn't pursue it...maybe next time. Good oyster spots around Jedediah.

Lasqueti is nice...years ago I pulled into Squitty Bay at the south tip (seen from the window of a float-plane once) so we had to investigate. Tight little bay to get into and it's a good place to explore, kayak and hike through the windswept sheep trimmed south hills or all the way up the road to the top of the island.

My friends Yawl peacefully secured at Squitty Bay Government float.

I still reckon you guys are photoshopping those pics ...


Gobsmackingly beautiful. I love (albeit through gritted teeth ) to look at pics of the PNW.

Hey, someone mentioned oysters. What kind of oysters ? Rock or bottom dwellers, small or large ?

Thanks your furryness, Hope I'm not drifting off Faster's thread...but since you asked, they're large oysters here generally with new shell growth rings, so very healthy. They're rock dwellers to be pried off at low tide. Most people will tell you small is better but this is not true at all, although the winter and spring months produce better/firmer oysters. We go for the largest ones and doctor them with a special BBQ recipe.

These are my BBQ oysters with special old cheese melted on top and some other special ingredients.



This is a good oyster beach...completely white with oysters.



I fed these to someone last year and he told me many months later that this is likely the best food he has ever eaten in his life...could be an exaggeration but he seemed to be sincere.
