Logbook: Prideaux Haven
Can you believe that I found a post from last year that was never uploaded? Blas from the past - here are some BC pictures while we are in French Polynesia!
Prideaux Haven is one of those spots in Desolation Sound that is packed to the rim in the summer season and we had Melanie Cove (one of the 3 main anchorages in the area) either to ourselves or with one other boat each night.
The kayaking was great because the edges of the coves are lined with rock shelves full of critters, there is a large lagoon to paddle through, and a bunch of small islets to paddle around.
Our last two nights were made even more enjoyable by the presence of Greg and Nicole on SV Baraka who joined us for dinner one evening and who were kind enough to donate some yeast to our pantry so we could made bread. After a few weeks without a grocery store our fresh supplies were still doing OK but we were out of baked goods.
The weather has been 50-50. We are early in the season and Spring has been touch and go in BC. Still, we’ve had enough sunny days mixed in to get some good time kayaking and we don’t mind (as much) transiting or playing in wet weather now that the air temp has come up.
The great debate aboard SV Estrellita 5.10b is whether we’ll miss having any kind of summer at all if we spend 3 weeks in the Haida Gwaii – to be determined…
