August 31 to Sept 03, 2007 BROKEN ISLANDS TO VICTORIA

We planned on getting fuel in Port Renfrew and ran out at the entrance to Port San Juan. We sailed into Port Renfrew and anchored next to the dock. It turns out the fuel is at the marina up the river and the water is too shallow for a sail boat! (This restriction was not mentioned in the Douglas or Wagner guides.)
Lucky for us our good friends Mike and Cathy were joining us, with Mike's son Tory driving them out from Victoria. A panic phone call, just in time, allowed them to pick up a carboy and we drove back and forth from the marina until we had 80 litres. THANK-YOU MIKE, CATHY & TORY!
We motor sailed to Sooke and were treated to the interesting moonrise in the picture above. Our son Steve joined us, with family friend Jason, both chefs, with a special desert to welcome us.
The Sherringham and Race Rocks Lighthouses helped point the way home.
After a quiet night on the hook at Albert Head we arrived at CFSA midday on the 3rd.
Thus ended the phase I of our adventure.
