Squirrel Cove - 8/5/2012

After a very restful night, we pull up the anchor to make our way south.  Ah, the anchor is very clean, like new.  Rocky bottom, eh?

We travel down Waddington Channel, enjoying the scenery as we cruise.

I have the helm today, and could get addicted to this!

We pass Roscoe Bay and head into Refuge Cove for provisions and fuel.  This is a busy port and we do wait in line for space at the dock.  

With enough dog food to last a month, fresh fruit and vegetables, we make our way to Squirrel Cove where there is plenty of anchorage.

We had heard of a ship's sinking here, but the area has been cleaned.  We find a good place to hook within sight of a mast of a fishing vessel peeking out from the surface of the water.  Comox Coast Guard announces a sailing vessel is submerged.  Hmmmm.......

Sunken Vessel

We are not the only Ranger Tug to find Squirrel Cove today.  Circle T and Sunrise are rafted up, Rum Tum Tugger is down the shore a ways, and in the middle is Cascadia.  As we look around, we see the Cutwater Sybil Jean a short distance away.  

Lincoln dinghys over to say Hello.  The weather is HOT, and I ask if Marmie has her air conditioner on.  He says no, everyone has been in the water, except him, and he will dip in soon.  He says the water is warm.

Herb takes Jake and me to a rock for a swim.  "Lincoln!  You said it is warm!  Why am I gasping?"

But the cool water is wonderful and we all enjoy it.

Jake is wet as a wet dog, and licks his paws to dry them.  I have Jake towels for that.
