‘8-22-10 Finished laundry, got some groceries then headed to the dock were we saw the winds had kicked up to 15-20 kts. We put the laundry in big plastic bags that we had brought for rain protection, not wave protection. We headed out to the boat about a mile away. Right away water came into the dingy, and the bags went floating inside the dingy. We got to Code Blue and our laundry was dry but we were soaked mostly on one side from wind and waves. We sailed to Gorge Harbour part of the way then the winds died and motored. After anchoring in the harbour we ate a fast meal and there was a guitarist, Stephanie DeFresne, out on the deck and grass area. We brought wine and cushions, she played from 7:30 to about 9:15pm. They were ballad songs of her own writing and composition. She had two CD’s available but I left my wallet at the boat as it was in the drying out stage. Since the last time we were here three years ago they have put in new docks, ramps, swimming pool and patio brickwork on the lawn. Lots of boats are on the docks. Weather is nice today. I’m having sign in problems as they use a user name and password here. Trip 547.8
