The Launch Spring 2019

We are a little nervous as the travel lift creeks and groans while lifting our precious cargo into the air. We have been hauled out many times but it is always an uneasy feeling until Idyll Time is safely back in the water. On this particular launch, Idyll Time must be carried almost half a […]

Spring 2019 Commissioning

We are happy to be back aboard Idyll Time. Our 3300 mile cross country RV trip went well. We crossed off two National Parks from our bucket list, Hot Springs in Arkansas and Arches in Moab Utah. The highlight of our trip was a week spent along the Oregon Coast. We enjoyed some great hiking […]

A Change of Scenery

With a favorable forecast for the Strait of Georgia, we reluctantly say goodbye to Rekindle and Navigator and depart Van Donnop anchorage at first light for a 62 mile run down the strait to our anchorage in Tribune Bay on Hornby Island. Seeing several whale spouts, we make a stop to see what is going […]

Running The Rapids

We have zero visibility as we pull away from the slip in Port McNeil and enter Queen Charlotte Strait. Checkout time is 11 am and we must leave as they have another boat coming into our slip. The dock master assures us that the fog usually lifts by 10 am, but not today. We keep […]

Dixon Entrance to Cape Caution

The calm passage was well worth the wait. We soon enter British Columbia waters and call Nexus for our clearance. With our newly […]
