Back in Bedwell Harbour

We are back in Bedwell Harbour after ten days in Victoria. Victoria offers lots of distractions: the endless activity of seaplanes and ferries coming and going from the Inner Harbour, shopping, great restaurants, chandleries and book stores, kayaking in the Gorge. I’ve never managed to make a sketch or painting in Victoria – when we are there we are always too much entertained and diverted.
Today we sailed back north up the Haro Strait – the body of water shown in the left of this photo. Sam has joined us, taking advantage of the annual double whammy of Mother’s Day and his mother’s birthday. This is a major birthday – 60 – and has been celebrated now for nearly a full month. I will not go quietly into older age. We just finished a fine dinner of steak and potatoes and salad, and are still listening to the Blues on KPLU out of Tacoma, maybe the last evening it will be possible. We really do plan to head north after dropping Sam off on Monday, leaving behind croissants, fine Blues radio, and easily accessed high speed internet.

Happy Mother's Day! My mom's birthday is today and occasionally falls on Mom Day. Haven't had a chance to write but have been logging on occasionally to follow your journeys. Been very busy here in Illinois with work and family. I spoke to Erica about getting her on that boat someday. She is a little (lot) leary... perhaps my son or daughter will be game in a year or two. Glad to see you both are all doing well. Stay safe.
