Our main cruise in 2008 was our September cruise in the Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands. The weather was fabulous - sunny and warm. Except for some rough water just south of Nanaimo, the winds were fairly calm. We stayed at marinas along the way and went for many long walks in the places we visited. Here are a few pictures.
