The captain and first mate of Rikki-tikki-tavi enjoyed several very leisurely months in British Columbia's waters this summer. Between May 16th and September 22, we visited Princess Louisa Inlet, Von Donop Inlet, the Octopus Islands, and Annette Inlet. Between long stays at each lovely spot, we overnighted in Ballet Bay, Rebecca Spit (twice), and took a mooring for three days at Newcastle Island (Nanaimo). It was a summer to sit still, enjoy meeting friends both new and "old", and doing boat work. After seven years, our Rikki-tikki is needing some TLC. The weather was not very cooperative. Consistent sun did not arrive until mid July, so the rain slowed down our progress. We have more work to do.
We will be hauling out at Bellingham on Monday, October 10th. It will be our first experience using the Sea View yard. We are hoping the the weather is kind to us! We'll let you know how it goes.
