Roberta,Ken And The Pups Cruise The World On A Relatively Small Boat

[KensBlog 2017-06] Southward Bound

Greetings all! Roberta and I are slowly working our way south somewhat retracing steps. We need to be back home to Seattle early in September and have some places further south (like Victoria Canada) that we want to visit. Here’s a recap of some of the places we visited on our way south… Echo Bay Resort We spent a couple nights at the Echo Bay resort which we really didn’t know much about, but enjoyed our time there. Here’s a video I found on the web that describes Echo Bay better than...

[KensBlog 2017-05] Riddle Solutions and Finding Nimmo

That teeny white dot you see is us anchored just outside Nimmo Bay. You see the resort to the right, although we couldnt see it from where we were anchored. We had the entire bay to ourselves.
Thank you to everyone who contributed all the great solutions to the riddle from my last blog entry. I’ve included your responses at the bottom of this blog entry. A brief comment about this season: Even though cold water cruising isn’t my first choice, we’re having fun! We have managed to find bays where we were 100% alone, or huge anchorages with only a couple other boats. We’ve been barbecuing, hanging out in the hot tub and exploring by tender. Cruising doesn’t get much better. And, best o...

[Kensblog 2017-04] A riddle for you to think about

Roberta and I spent the last few days anchored in a large bay called “Turnbull Cove.” One of the fun things to do in Turnbull Cove is to hike to a nearby lake. The hike is short; only about a half mile. To do the hike you park yo...

[KensBlog 2017-03] Sullivan Bay

Roberta and Keely busted and in the Sullivan Bay jail. Fortunately I was able to bail them out
Roberta and I have cruised 40,000 miles, but amazingly we have never really cruised our own home waters; the Pacific Northwest. I’m the culprit, not Roberta. I am not into fishing, and I don’t like cruising in cold water. I guess I can’t say that we’ve never cruised the area, because we did pass through here on our way to Alaska in 2009, but we were moving quickly in a hurry on our way to Japan. And, we cruised the region twenty years ago, in a much smaller boat, never making it this far nor...
