We crossed the Strait of Georgia and arrived at Lund early as the marina doesn't accept reservations, the wind was forecast to rise to 30 knots in the afternoon, and that's where sister Sue and brother-in-law Bob were scheduled to arrive at 3:30pm. But an early morning text from Sue said the Houston airport was closed due to thunderstorms and they'd keep us posted. The pub at the Lund Hotel adjacent to the marina is an amusing place.

Long story short, the Houston airport re-opened too late for them to make their Vancouver connection to Powell River, but they got another flight followed by a taxi ride to Lund and arrived at 6:00pm. 

7:30 dinner reservations at the waterfront Boardwalk Restaurant made for a great evening. The 30-knot winds materialized and kept boats rocking much of the night, with so many boats coming out of anchorages to get out of the wind that they were rafted 3-deep in the marina. 

Breakfast at "Nancy's Bakery" was exceptional as always, and we took off for Toba Wilderness.

Lund was a good start to our time together.
