Date/Time: Monday, September 29, 2014
Location: Sidney, BC
Weather: Windy, some rain, improving in the afternoon
We arose with the intention of departing early for Friday Harbor, but the weather forecast wasn’t the best, with gale warnings for the eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca and wind warnings for Haro Straits, which we will have to cross. Winds were supposed to increase in the afternoon, then decrease overnight with better weather to follow on Tuesday.
Having learned our lesson in Georgia Straits a few days ago, we stayed in Sidney and spent the day seeing the sights. We ate in a few restaurants, browsed in a few stores, walked the docks and looked at boats again.
This evening is beautiful with calm winds, and the water in the harbor has calmed appreciably. We will be ready for an early morning departure again tomorrow.
