Apparently, there will be lots of this, we woke up this morning,at 6, to head out, and i found that i couldnt even see the bow on the boat!!! One sailboat had anchored near us, and i could barely see its shape, so, back to bed!!! I had no problem with that at all, Bert was still snoring nicely, so, we stay another day.
Our plan is to sail, (hopefully), around Vancouver Island, we have been told, that yes, there will be fog, yes, its called Faugust, not August, but heh, we just have to try. We have still close to 2 months time. But, we are not going south this year, some very personal stuff came up, and we need to stay here. I feel its a good decision, and everything has a reason, listening to our friend Shendra, as she would say, everything in its right time, there is a reason for it that you dont go this year. We will be keeping busy with the boat, sewing some new canvas pieces, and a large cover for protection from the weather. I will have to stay “strong”, and NOT get a new kitten…… its so quiet without Annie, so strange, we still” hear” her, still hear her jumping off the seat in the cockpit, Bert still feels that she is lying at the foot of the bed, we have a very soft blanket there that feels like her fur, he just about did a flip to try to avoid leaning on “her”,yes, she is missed. But, at the other side of it, i can go to the Island,see my girls, and stay longer, not have to travel with her , as it became very hard the last few months of her life.
We are heading to Bull Harbour tomorrow, unless this darn fog comes back again, sitting here, i can now see the other side of the bay,so, we will see. I dont know when i can write again, but surely will try!!!
