Renovations and Upgrades

Well this all started last year after replacing batteries and adding 600W of solar.  That was about all the solar we could fit onto the existing bimini.We did not want to increase the size for fear of spoiling the lines of the bimini/flybridge.&nb…

The Haul Out

It’s time to close this years chapter on cruising. We have had an amazing year and are sorry to see it end. After much deliberation, we have decide to leave Idyll Time in Sidney, B.C. over the winter. She will stay out of water in Van Isle Marina’s Yacht Park. It is always an anxious […]

San Juan Islands

Crossing Boundary Pass, we say goodbye to Canada’s Gulf Islands and enter US waters. We call Customs for our clearance back into the U.S.A. With our NEXUS card this is incredibly easy. In order to get this card, we underwent a background check and a face to face interview with both Canada and U.S. Customs […]

Well we have decided that going south this season might be a good option so we are planning on Trinidad for Carnival! Seamantha are game and it sounds like Alizann is seriously considering. A Krogen Rendezvous!

Galiano Island

Phone Blogging

Maria

Gut wrenching is the only way I can describe the feeling as images and information slowly emerge from Dominica. I don’t know how they will rebuild.

Desolation Sound Part two

Drew Harbor to Von Donop: We are heading back to Desolation Sound today for another week of exploring. Traveling up Sutil Channel we are soon rewarded with stunning views. When we were here last month the smoke from the Forrest fires had obscured our view of these high mountain peaks. We are a little nervous […]

Port McNeil

Sullivan Bay to Port McNeil: Saying goodby to Sullivan Bay, we took advantage of a good weather window to cross Queen Charlotte Strait. We were just entering the Strait when my heart about jumped out of my body. As I glanced to the starboard side, I was looking at a large humpback whale no more […]
