The Spirit of Freedom Visits

We completed a circumnavigation of South Pender Island yesterday, returning to anchor once again in front of Poets Cove in Bedwell Harbour.  We settled in to check our email and facebook, and there is a message from Pamela saying they will be clearing customs at Bedwell today, and where were we?

We were at the right place at the right time!

They came over from Reid Harbor on Stuart Island this morning, and we had a nice visit on 'Spirit' first, then at the cafe for coffee.

They wanted to keep moving north to prepare for a Georgia Strait crossing on Monday, so after a couple of hours they were off -- sails up!

The anchor is set, and Cliff hoists the courtesy flag.

Pamela, Angel, and Cliff
Pamela and her friend Tami were the hosts for the South Sound Sail-In that we attended in Filucy Bay last June.  She gave us excellent advice for cruising the South Sound, and offered great hospitality at her home on several occasions through the summer and fall.  They are on their way north for the summer, staying closer to home for longer than they usually do this year, getting to know their new granddaughter, Kourtney.

We hope our boating paths cross again later this season!
