Its been weeks since we’ve seen any kind of cumulus clouds in Howe Sound.
With a bit of a weather change the last couple of days, we’re seeing some lovely picture perfect cloud formations, like this one over Vancouver, framed in the foreground by Passage Island.
Weather here can be extremely localized. When I left our house in North Vancouver, about 10 km away from where the boat is moored, it was drizzling slightly. At Horseshoe Bay, it was all sun.
With a nice southerly at about 12 knots, Madsu was doing 5 knots SMG beating to windward, against the flood tide current, as we headed out to the Straight.
