Herb diagnoses the problem and orders a replacement impeller.
We have a short trip today to Ladysmith on Vancouver Island, a favorite harbour for Herb and me.
Destiny leads out, followed by Moondance.
Chermainus is a beautiful town just south of Ladysmith, and we plan to visit there some day.
We arrive and everyone helps with the lines.
Remembering the lo-o-ng walk from the marina up the hill to town, I opt for the shuttle ride. It comes every two hours to the street above the ramp. $1 per person.
We provision at the 49th Parallel Grocery, then accept a ride back to the marina aboard the store's courtesy van -- driven by a manager! What hospitality!
Find Willie's Tug, Moondance, and Destiny..........
We explore the new community room, which has free up to date showers, laundry facilities, a cookout area and reading room. Mark, the manager, now has a spacious office here, as well.
The profit from the Ladysmith Maritime Society marina benefits the Martin bird population restoration, and we are told that at 4 AM tomorrow, we will hear the birds singing as they begin their day. We see many Martin houses.
