Montague Harbour Marine Park -- 6/2/2015

This Tuesday morning about 7:30A one of the school boats, The Graduate, docks in the fairway closest to shore and unloads children from surrounding islands who go to school in Ganges on Salt Spring Island.  A few minutes later the other boat, Scholarship, brings her load of children into Kanaka Marina where we are docked.

After breakfast Herb and I take one last stroll around town and enjoy the colourful Spring flowers at Salt Spring Inn.  Each colour is more beautiful than the other, with the purple, orange, pink, fucia, yellow and lavendar.  

Seeing the glorious blossoms makes me happy, as I recall the lovely dinner inside the Inn last night with Gail and Patrick.

Adventure calls and we cast off in search of a nearby anchorage, first checking out Montague on Galiano Island.  We remember it can be windy here, so take a look for a protected area.  There are several mooring balls available, but the dock looks very inviting.  So far only one other boat is here.  We tie up and after a quick lunch, we take a walk up to shore.

My eye is drawn to the many shapes and sizes of rocks on the beach, some of which are nestled against the shore with the weathered driftwood.

The ramp is steep but I take advantage of the wooden strips to help give me safe footing as I walk up.

It is good to be at Montague again, having missed it last year to scoot directly to The Broughtons north of Desolation Sound.  We plan to do more exploring here tomorrow.

Find Willie's Tug....
