Headed off to Pender Island this weekend for a cruise with our club. Hoping to get a mooring ball in Bedwell Harbour. Weekend weather is looking fantastic. If anyone is out that way drop by and say hi.

There's a very good chance I'll be heading over that way. When do you leave and when are you returning?

Sounds good. I'll keep an eye out in Bedwell. There's no name on my boat (yet), but it has a light tan canopy, probably a orangish kayak on the hood.

Cheers,
Mike

So, how was the weekend?

Did you get a chance to see Port Browning? Did they do any of the promised renovations yet?

Unfortunately, I didn't make it that way on May long. I ended up at Ganges on SSI. I did make it to Poet's Cove last Saturday, but not to Browning. May be making that trip this weekend, weather dependent. I'll have a look if I do.

I've stayed at Port Browning a few times this spring (Easter weekend and about three weeks ago).
The Pub and building have been renovated but no changes with the docks yet. I think I heard a number of folks saying the old docks will be removed come fall and new ones will be installed over the winter.
Hope they keep the winter rates but I doubt it...

Weekend was excellent. Weather was very hot and sunny. We were able to score a mooring ball. Did a hike up Mount Norman for the great view over the bay.

Yes we got over to Port Browning. They have started renovations to the Pub and its looking great now with more to come. Docks still need TLC and I'm not sure if those are in the plan right now.
