Barkley Sound

We have spent the past three weeks in Barkley Sound, which tops the list of our favorite places to "cruise". Cruising means some days under sail - whenever the wind blows, some days tied up in beautiful Ucluelet (pictured above) or wandering around the Long Beach Peninsula or Tofino.
But most days, we are at anchor, among the cluster of islands called the Broken Group. Given that it has been "Fogust", many mornings there is fog - sometimes dense and all encompassing, but more often drifting here and there. Wonderful effects occur when the fog begins to lift and the clear sky emerges
And then there are the evenings when we are occasionally treated to a sunset like this one, or to the full dark sky that lets us see the Milky Way. We'll spend a few more of these late summer days at anchor here, then head south for a stop in Oregon before we continue along to Mexico.

Looks idyllic. Wave when you pass the Columbia:-)

All is trundling along here in Portland.
