Easy day in Bamfield. A great little place and very laid back. It’s a holiday town but there is no rush or bustle, everything is neat and tidy and well laid out. There are some nice houses lining the inlet with their private docks and well-tended gardens. I like the look of the place.
Well I did a bit of housekeeping today and rested my ribs which are hurting less now, but I am still frightened to sneeze.
Tomorrow I will continue on down the coast to Victoria which is only a couple of days away now. I am looking forward to sailing down the Juan de Fuca Strait, I have done it many times before in bigger ships than Truce. I hope I get lucky with the weather and the notorious fog stays away.
I can’t remember going through the Juan de Fuca Strait in daylight. This is because the arrival is usually timed to pick up the pilot early morning for the trip up to Vancouver, likewise coming out from Vancouver the pilot is usually dropped off late afternoon. Total voyage distance 1,001.2 miles.
