Moving Day at Ladysmith -- 6/11-12/2015

Friday brings changes to the dock with the arrival of 15 boats in the Nanaimo Yacht Club who come in for a week end rendezvous.  A few boats on our dock leave for other destinations, and those of us who stay now walk our boats to the outer end of the dock to allow the club to be together near the marina community dock.

Ah, last night's centerpiece -- a wildflower and radishes freshly dug from a friend's farm nearby.

As we prepare to move the boats, Debbie the week end Harbormaster, helps to push out the logs that have floated in around our waterlines.

Herb and Keith lead Nit-Sea-Moose forward about 400 feet to the end of the available mooring area, then Willie's Tug follows.

In the late afternoon Joan and Herb share a 'Cocktail 'N Learn' session about the Navionics program on the iPad.  She is quite proficient at plotting a course and always ready to learn more.   One can not have too many charts, our main one being on the Garmin, then two iPads and of course the paper charts -- all contributing to making our navigation true and safe.

Roper doesn't need a knife and fork to lap up the quarter ounce of curried chicken left from our dinner, but we don't share the port with him. 

Oh, did I ever mention this wine is home-made?  Nice label for the chocolate raspberry liqueur.
