Enjoying one the last trips of the season on the Sailboat




This weekend my husband and I (and of course our dog) are spending one of the last weekends we'll be able to on our sailboat in Bedwell Bay (just off the village of Belcarra near Vancouver, BC).  I'm hoping summer will last longer, but I start travelling for work in early September so for us this is getting close to our last trip.

This was the first time we have taken our boat under the Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver and then under the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge.  It was pretty amazing.

Lions Gate Bridge
 It really is a pretty sight coming under this bridge and into Coal Harbour and Burrard Inlet.  The city of Vancouver is on your right with the North Shore mountains on your left.












Iron Workers Memorial Bridge and Railway Tressle




In order to get into Indian Arm you go under a second bridge as well as a railway tressle - of course you have to radio the man that operates the tressle.  The last thing you want is to go through in a sailboat when the tressle is down :(




Of course, I planned ahead and brought some stamping with me.  Work space could be bigger, but it works
