Sunday July 7th – Our plans have been derailed. The weather forecast called for lots of rain up north, exactly where we planned on heading, so we decided to make a detour to the city of Vancouver on the BC mainland, 35nm away. Departing the Nanaimo docks, we set out out across the Strait of Georgia with our bow pointed toward Vancouver. The Strait of Georgia is a large body of water that gets really rough at times. Today we had wind forecasted for 5-15 knots and rain. Not perfect conditions for crossing the strait but acceptable and probably the best we were going to get in the next few days.

It got a little sloppy with lots of spray on the nose but after a couple hours of open water we arrived in English Bay just outside Vancouver then headed into False Creek where Quayside Marina had our slip waiting for us.

After getting settled in we jumped in a water taxi for some shopping on 4th. We came back with some clothes for the kids and 3 small irresistible pies from The Pie Hole.
