Turn Point Again
There have been blog posts here before about Turn Point (click here then scroll down to see all entries about Turn Point) . We hiked out to Turn Point on a sunny Friday morning, thinking it fitting that this beautiful spot overlooking the boundary waters that constitute the border between the US and Canada be our last stop before leaving the country. The BLM, the Coast Guard, and a non-profit support group are doing a great job of keeping the buildings here in good shape. This view looks through the forest at the roof of the Lightkeeper's Quarters and the waters of Boundary Pass beyond.
Since crossing into Canada, we have been moving quickly north and west, so that we are now on Quadra Island, about half way up Vancouver Island. We have had long stretches under sail, and some on the motor. When not on watch, I have been working on iPad paintings like this one. The little machine is wonderfully convenient for short spells of work. No water or solvent to spill if we hit rough seas!
