In the summer of 2010 I was able to spend quite a few weekends living on my friend’s boat, moored at Choquers. You could kind of say that I had the luxury of living on water front property with an ocean view.
The view from the boat and dock is absolutely gorgeous, especially on a sunny day.
Not once did I miss watching TV with all the neighbourhood drama.
A regular Peyton Place right next door consisting of cormigans, ducks, a single blue heron, an eagle, an owl, seagulls, jelly fish, fish and other sealife.
My 4 hour jellyfish study alone produced 200 pictures.
The neighbours were great. The sea planes on the next dock over weren’t too bad either (lots of photo ops) but when the crew boats started leaving the dock at 4 am rather than 5 am it became a bit much. Luckily this was near the end of August.
Although I like fishing, I did not grow up on boats so it took a few weekends before I was ready to leave the dock.
On a day trip up the inlet I took some pictures while we were setting up rods to go fishing.
And at the end of a great day, it’s always nice to go to Davis Bay and get an ice cream cone.
