As we approached Vancouver the evidence of a world class city began to appear on the horizon. Lots of tankers and bulk carriers. We just skirted the Spanish Banks and it got shallow very quickly. Once back inside channel, plenty of water. The buoys are right on the edge of the Banks.
The city starting to come into view. We chose to anchor in False Creek. Near Yaletown and site of the Worlds Fair.
Sundown and sundowners.
The purpose for going to Vancouver was to pick up Jill and Ray Thomas, from Florida for a two week holiday into Desolation Sound.This was Snug Harbor on Bowen Island. About 11 miles from Vancouver. The Union Steamship Marina.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
