We entered the Straits of Georgia and made our way to our landing at Wallace Island, where we enjoyed a leisurely hike through Madrone and spruce forest along the length of the island. A pleasant and nourishing rain fell as we passed the old caretaker’s cottage, which served several small cottages at a resort for vacationers to the Gulf Islands. We visited a makeshift shrine to various boats, ships, and sailing vessels that had passed through this special place, and we observed the remains of a lone vehicle that hauled wood and supplies for people overnighting on the island. Later in the afternoon, we re-entered U.S. waters in order to pass through customs at Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands, and we took advantage of our mooring by spending several hours perusing the shops and cafés during our last night on this voyage.
