Sea of Blue

IMG_3510

On the way home I was feeling a little blue that our sea-cruise was over. I loved the extra attention bestowed upon me by the humans, not to mention all the treats I received. I will miss my new furiends Tank, Skipper and Cloe, and my humans when at their jobs away from home and me, who were once just a tail-swish away.  The freedom of boating has allowed me to become a lot more accustomed to being outdoors, and it’ll be a pain to go back to window sitting….(MOL, silly cat humour!)  Continue reading

Garden Bay Greetings

IMG_4358

Alas my furiends, after a 6 hour cruise on fairly calm waters, we glided into Garden Bay Marina in Pender Harbour for the last 2 days of our vacation. A few of our PMPSS  humans were there to greet us as I guided Minstrel  into her slip assignment. Continue reading

Treated in Tenedo’s Bay

IMG_4257

Meow my furiends. It’s been hot hot hot. We spent the last 3 days rafted up in beautiful Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park with it’s more than 60 km of shoreline, several islands, numerous small bays and snug coves. The warm waters of the park are ideal for swimming and scuba diving and the forested upland offers a shady refuge of trails, small lakes, and designated campsites. This park can be split up into three major destination anchorages: Prideaux Haven, Tenedo’s Bay and Grace Harbour. Continue reading

Raft-up in Rebecca Spit

IMG_4032

I  love boating and fishing so much that when we passed through one of the best fishing waters, called Wilby Shoals at the south end of Quadra Island, it was too hard to pass up and I told my humans to make a short trip longer. Dad put out the downriggers and after a few hours Continue reading

BC Day in Comox

The travel over to Comox was about 56 nautical miles, (or 100km). At first I thought “Oh no”, but after awhile the water smoothed out and it wasn’t so bad. The day was clear & sunny, not to mention hot. It took us about 6 hours. Last year I had a little niche in the prawn traps on the upper deck where I liked to hang out. This year they tried to re-create it and my mom made it a little tent like for me… Sweet! Continue reading

Geocaching on Caturday

IMG_3100

Today was a good day to go geocaching. I didn’t actually get to go but my Oceantagz fish tag did. There were several geocaches hidden on Newcastle Island and my fish tag visited 2 of them, pictured below. My mom wants me to accompany them when they do land excursions, but my dad is a lot more conservative and doesn’t, but if dad wants a happy life, then he has to have a happy wife, so I will be going to shore at some point. Continue reading

Purrsea’s Northern Lights Cruise

Meowee, I can’t believe the day finally arrived and we left the marina to start our 2 week fun-filled yet untold adventures sea-cruise with the Port Moody Power & Sail Squadron (PMPSS). I understand we are part of about a 10 vessel fleet that we will be joining up with at the various bays and marinas our cruise master has preplanned for us to visit. Continue reading
