Re: 17 Days in the San Juans
On the Canadian side, the town of Ganges on Saltspring island is a great place to reprovision and explore. On Saturdays there is a craft market, and the multitude of artisans on on the island gather to sell their crafts, farm fresh produce, baked goods, cheeses, etc. There are even wineries on the island. There are art galleries to explore, and it is home to world renowned artists such as Robert Bateman.
One of our favorite spots is a place called Cabbage Island. It is a marine park, with moorings and anchorage nestled between Tumbo Island and Cabbage Island. There are reefs to explore if you like snorkeling, trails to hike, and a beautiful white sandy beach for the kids to play on. It is a bit exposed to the north, but there is good holding bottom if you don't manage to pick up one of the moorings.
