Day 27 Ladysmith
Share
clear

I have to make a correction to a statement in yesterday's post. The garden here won a prize as the best in the entire country not just Vancouver Island.

We packed our stuff and headed for the Ladysmith Yacht Club after a walk on the rocks as the tide was out and breakfast. The marinas here are completely different from anything in the east. Huge floating boat houses are built of wood with an aluminum skin for each boat. They are then attached to a long floating dock. A fabric door keeps the birds out and rolls up when you want to take your boat out. A remote control lowers it when you have left (see photo). The boat houses provide great storage for the boat but are not as social as the docks in the east.

We cruised 27 miles to Montague Harbor and tied up to one of the last two moorings in the harbor. It was at a provincial park and cost $10 per day. After a fabulous meal of beef fajitas we had a very quiet night in the v-berth.
