Prideaux Haven to Toba Inlet

Even though the weather was drizzly and grey we had a nice evening at Prideaux Haven. Here is a picture of me on the boat in the afternoon of Tuesday June 12th. I think I wore this sweater most of the time on the boat!

The next morning was much bright and we hauled up the anchor and headed north - up the Waddington Channel which is between West Redonda Island and East Redonda island. We ( Jim ) did most of the steering of the boat from the flybridge. There was a much better all around view from up there and most of the time the weather was nice enough to be up top and the binimi kept us fairly dry when it was raining.
We took a little side trip up Pendrell Sound.

This is the screen shot of the chart and the route we took on Wednesday.
After motoring up Pendrell sound we went Back to Waddington Channel and continued north towards the Wildernest Resort where we had planned to spend the night.
Walsh Cove - a little anchorage in Waddington Channel

A boat stern tied and anchored in Walsh Cove.

That was a very pretty little spot to anchor. It looked like they had been there for a while. There were some pictographs on the rocks in Walsh Cove so we went in for a closer look.
Coming out the gap between West and East Redonda islands.

Wildernest Resort is a small little spot that sits on the mainland just where Pryce Channel - Homfray Channel and Toba Inlet meet.

We were able to dock the boat - successfully!! And get off and go for a little walk. It was a lovely little spot with a beautiful waterfall that the owner had used to build his own little hydro plant.

It was almost hot and the sweater came off. The owner - Kyle and Jim and I were the only people there.

Walking up to the waterfall

Such a beautiful spot to spend the night.

And we had a visitor as we were cooking prawns for dinner on the boat.

We think it is a River Otter.

  1. Summer time photos are always welcome , and learning new places and seeing new sights is rejuvenating. Beats sitting around indoors getting warm.

  2. Looks like you had a lovely junket in the boat. So fun to see all the beautiful spots- love the waterfalls and the peaceful environment that you travelled.

    I just put up a new post and passed on a little blog award called the Liebster award. I am still trying to figure out the new format of blogger so the post does not look quite like I would like. I just wanted to let you know that I thought of you and wanted to honor your blog. Hope all is well with you and yours. Happy summer my friend, Regards, Anna
