Landon’s Cruising Report – A Rendezvous with History

After an enjoyable night’s stay at Hornby Island Harbour Authority Docks, we headed for Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, where our Nephew spent another night with us aboard Got d’ Fever before departing the following day via Seair floatplane service.  We enjoyed the day touring many of the popular sights in Nanaimo:  the old city quarter, the waterfront, the Hudson Bay Bastion and cannons, and Newcastle Island by dinghy, followed by dinner at the Dinghy Dock Pub on Protection Island. Java, our 14-year-old Dachshund and Waggoner Guide Dog, hiked the trails with us on Newcastle Island.  Like her masters, she has gray hair but still pretty lively and hiked the entire 3-mile circuit to Mallard Lake and back again along the shoreline…read more of their adventures HERE.
