August 18, 2013 - Gulf Islands, British Columbia

We just spent 11 days in the beautiful British Columbia Gulf Islands.


We dinghied from Annette Inlet to a small island to check out the small
shell beach.  It was worth it!
Kevin water skiing in Annette Inlet

Cindy goes knee-boarding

Kevin takes a spin on the knee-board

the kids head out for a sail, with healthy snacks in hand.

Kevin goes off to do some solo sailing.  He's only 8!

Kevin takes kathy out.  At this point, Kevin is a good sailor so Kathy can
relax and be a passenger  :-)


Beautiful Russell Island

Over on Portland Island.  These are brave kids.

Breathtaking.   What an awesome summer.
