Day 17 - Cortez Island



I sailed solo across the Northern Straights of Georgia up into Gorges Harbor on Cortez Island. The shellfish are plentiful at low tide. Japanese (Pacific) oysters and butter clams are still free from shellfish poisoning this early in the seasoning. I met Sheri on the public dock at Gorges Harbor - she has been living on a small floating home named, 'Grassy Knoll' for about 16 years. She handed me a baked potato after tying up at the dock - that was the warmest reception I've received on a public dock.

The weather remains damp and blustery, but it hasn't bothered me yet.
