The Benjamins – July 16th

16 Jul

This is one of my favourite anchorages in the North Channel – it is beautiful here with smooth pink granite rocks all over the place. Great place for walking, snorkelling and viewing all the other boats. Obviously, this is a very popular anchorage and there are over 40 boats here tonight. Luckily, everyone is behaving themselves so it is very nice and quiet.

It is very warm here – I guess the heatwave is across most of Canada, so this is a good place to be but during the middle of the day, it is so hot, you have to go and hide down below or you will cook! I will have to go kayaking tomorrow morning at 8:00 am because by 10:00, it will be too hot. The water temperature though, is very nice and we did a lot of swimming today. We went snorkelling over near a narrow channel that brave boats go through. It is really neat because you are swimming along the smooth rock about four feet down and then suddenly the rock drops down a huge underwater cliff – pretty cool to see!

Here are some pictures of the scenery. Check out the one of Dennis exercising and the one of the guy with his dog! We may stay here tomorrow – it depends on how many people clear out of here. We will go to Gore Bay next, probably on Monday.

    It is 90 in the shade here and that is without the humidex. Too hot to go out, too hot to sleep. I will be glad to go to work tomorrow – and that is sad.
