Hello all,

We created a blog where the Voyages of "Dolphin" will be narrated by Dolphin herself...

So far it covers from the first pictures of her, sitting at Dagmar's Marina, then to La Conner, Deer Harbour and Richmond and then from the cruise to Silva Bay at Gabriola Island, BC. Later this week the most recent trip to Bowen Island, Gibsons and Gambier Island will be posted...

Love to hear -or should I say read- your comments...

Please feel free to leave them either here or at Dolhpin's blog...

Also they can be found at the link at my signature...

Cheers to all!

It has been some days since we went for the last trip, but until today I got all the pictures I needed to make the report...

Here I am, ready to go again!!!

We started last Saturday, kind of late as my owners had to arrange everything for four kids (my two young crew members and other two visiting crew members from Mexico)...

Let me introduce you to Fernanda...

Everybody is ready to go and we set course to Bowen Island... So we followed my friend Tia Lynn, who set anchor at Bowen Island, next to Snug Cove

And Tia Lynn's Captain Shane took all the kids for a JetSki ride!!!

As I didn't have a slip to stay in Snug Cove we continued our journey all the way to Gibsons in the Sunshine Coast where I had a guaranteed bed to sleep (got a full slip all for myself!)...
Here the crew had a nice dinner... Hey Jojo!!! Do you mind sharing some wings with the rest of us?

Sunday morning, after a shower for the crew in the excellent facilities at Gibson's Marina and not before an excellent breakfast for the crew and a full tank of gas for me, we set course to the West Bay of Gambier Island where we were lucky and found that my Captain's friends were at home and they invited us for lunch in their gorgeus house!!!

Here I am at their dock while the crew is sharing with Martin, Tracey, Anna and James an excellent lunch...

Later on we went back to Bowen Island where we met again with Tia Lynn while we waited for the winds to ease a bit and make the journey back home more pleasant...
