Decadence -- Monday, 9/2/2013 -- Day 115

We leave Victoria at 10:30A under mostly cloudy skies, with only a hint of sun and blue sky.  Seas are flat calm with light winds.

Two hours into the trip -- just about the time I would say this trip is uneventful -- even with no sun, there's no wind -- we see fog!  All around!  But not thick where we are.  So far, so good.

We enjoy the boats we meet, and watch some over take others in the narrow channel of Colburn Passage.  

Two ferries approach the Schwartz Bay dock at the north of Saanich Peninsula, where one is already at the dock.  It could get interesting.

We go through Satellite Channel west of Salt Spring Island and into Cowichan Bay to arrive at our destination of Genoa Bay Marina.  Dreamspeaker travel guide recommends reservations in the Summer, but when we call, we are told, "Come on; everyone has left!"

I guess it is not Summer any longer.

The marina is quite picturesque and has a delightful deck for lounging -- or eating ice cream.

An art gallery and more -

Now for the good part:  we read about the restaurant and their awesome menu, and can't wait for dinner.  Steak, crab, and a nice bottle of red wine! 

 Then dessert!!!

Creme Brulee (Vanilla Bean, Candied Orange and Chocolate Espresso) and a decadent  Dark Chocolate and Raspberry Bread Pudding (Callebaut 56% Dark Raspberry Creme Anglaise).

There are no Leftovers!
