This boat wasn’t in the water, so I thought the plastic blue tablecloth was a nice touch. It gave the watery effect and hid the trailer.
I don’t even want to know how many layers of varnish are on this boat:
My favorite wooden one of the meet. It’s for sale. You can buy it for me if you want. lol
What a classy way to go around the bay:
My other favorite was this one. Back in the day, when our island still had its boathouse with the apartment on top, a 36 foot launch similar to this one was docked inside. All that’s left of it are the seats.
Here’s a video of one of the vintage racers speeding around the wharf:
After Victoria and her husband got back in the boat after jumping off of Hole in the Wall, we had to get out of the channel because the Island Queen would be going through soon. The Island Queen is the largest sightseeing boat in Canada and there’s no room for any other boats in the channel when they are going through.
Here comes the Island Queen!
Heading out of Hole in the Wall:
Mr. Pants slept through all of the action:
This guy in an awesome looking kayak rode our wake as we headed back home:
A couple of days ago, we went for a long boat ride through Hole in the Wall and out into some of the big water. Hole in the Wall is a rugged channel between Huckleberry and Wall Islands. It have steep cliffs and it is quite narrow at some points. The big local tour boats only have a few feet clearance on each side at its narrowest point.
Though it was a hot day, Mr. Pants came along for the ride and tried to keep cool under his towel.
Approaching Hole in the Wall:
It’s quite scenic there. The steep drop of the rocks always amazes me:
Some of the locals jump off of the cliffs into the water. Here’s Victoria and her husband jumping:
Remember how I’ve mentioned that we get some really amazing sunsets here in cottage country? Here’s the latest example pictures that I’ve taken of this. These were taken from the boat a few days ago. I really liked how the clouds looked that night.
In part two of the ‘On the Water’ series, here we are going through Hole in the Wall. This narrow channel is shortens the trip to get to the big water by going between Huckleberry Island and Wall Island. The steep cliffs on either side are 80 feet tall and the channel itself. It’s not uncommon to see a boat or two pulled up on the rocks and people climbing up the cliffs to jump into the water.
