Clam Bay, Thetis Island

Thursday night we docked at the swanky Galiano Island Oceanfront Resort in Sturdies Bay because it's a 5-minute walk from the B.C. Ferry Terminal where daughter Mackenzie and son-in-law Matt arrived Friday morning, having flown up from LA where they live. We haven't seen them since March, so are thrilled they're able to join us aboard for 6 nights.

We rushed to catch the 11:15 slack tide through Active Pass and headed north to an anchorage in Clam Bay on Thetis Island. After a quick boat tour and briefing, and dropping the anchor, we headed through the shallow inter-island passage in the dinghy to explore Telegraph Harbour and stop for a beer on the dock at Thetis Marina.

Then went for a beach walk.

The weather cooperated for happy hour in the cockpit.

Beginning of the long Labor Day weekend, so lots of boats in the anchorage.
