The tides were too low to retrieve the boat in Coronet Bay. So, we waited at the floating dock in Bowman Bay

Shallow bay has always been a favorite of mine. From our photo albums, it would appear the kids have grown up there as we have chosen it as an anchorage for the last eight years - sometimes 2 or 3 times a season. Last year, swells from the west entered the narrow opening and I swore I would never anchor there again. Your picture of calm waters and the beautiful view tempt me to break my vow.
Thanks

The winds were blowing from the South East all weekend. Fossil and Snoring Bay is where the winds were hitting the most. I was tempted to stay in Shallow Bay this time but, the Admiral wanted to stay in Fox Cove instead.

Fox and ewing cove are the two places at Sucia we havent anchored. Is there much current? From the looks of your pictures you had perfect weather.

There was big tidal exchange last weekend which made for strong currents in all of the bays. There usually is a bit more at Fox Cove, due to the water whipping around Little Sucia Island.

Man we're lucky to boat around here. Like I said on iBoat, those are great pics and I need to get back up there. It's been too long.
Thanks again for sharing.

We are extremely lucky to be so close to all of these great locations. I was sitting on Sucia looking over to the Gulf Island in Canada, and could not believe how close those are to the San Juans. I can't wait to explore up there soon.

I am also thinking about launching the boat in Canada and running up to Princess Louisa Inlet for a weekend in June before the crowds hit.

Let me know if you are interested.

That looks like the exact spot. Even the same tree branch is in the photo.
